Hi

My name is Ian and I am living in Inishowen, County Donegal, Ireland. I have a keen interest in horticulture and write a weekly gardening column in the Inish Times, a local weekly newspaper.
I have catalogued a few years worth of articles my blog site


Cheers

Ian Gomersall

Hi Blackbird.

The photo is of a makeshift gate at a friends house on the outskirts of Carndonagh. The ladder is put in place to keep the cows from entering a place where the washing is held up. Nothing too deep and meaningful, but I do like the depth of perspective and the colours!

Cheers

Ian

Thanks for that Richard.

I have pixilated eyes at the moment because of spending too much time on the computer. I got my long vision back tonight out in the garden. I have been collecting hazel rods for the beans and peas. It's been a great evening but the midges were out in force!

I'm still learning about putting blogs together. As they grow they get more difficult to navigate. I can see a web site coming on!

Cheers again

Ian

Hi all

I have added a moon cycle image on my blog site that shows if it is a waxing or waning period.

There is a lot of evidence to prove that the position of the moon is very important when considering work on the garden. It gives me a chance to sit back,relax and enjoy the fruits of my labours occasionally!

Cheers!!

Ian

inishindie, you know the way the moon affects the tides, with global warming, rising sea levels,what do you think the outcome will be, overall?

Hi Shefra

I can honestly say that I haven't a clue!

Predictions are not my strong point and there are loads of conflicting messages thrown around so it is very difficult to make an informed decision. I suppose if I knew I could join a growing number of people that are cashing in on the issue ( There was an interesting bit in the Times on Sunday that said the Green Fuel business is responsible for the devastation of land and homesteads .

All I can offer is a link that will confuse you even more about a rising tide theory!

http://www.predictweather.com/articles.asp?ID=59

Has anyone else any ideas as I am at a loss!!

Cheers

Ian
