We are so blessed to be living on a droplet in space where this scene could almost be anywhere.
Look more closely and you will find grasses, ferns, mosses, shrubberies and trees that hint towards Northern Europe. This beautiful green place just happens to be in Ireland at a place called Craggaunowen.
Although this place has been transformed into a medieval tourist attraction it was the old forest which captured my imagination. It made me want to explore this rich green landscape and leave the castles and medieval dwelling to the the tourists.
Let’s hope we never need to rely on tourism to keep our beautiful planet green.
