This blog started as a photo blog to showcase the eye for beauty of my husband. To honour him on his special day, allow me to share few of his recent snaps while reconnecting with nature. This is his idea of unwinding. Happiest Birthday my sweetheart.
Lord Iveagh's Clocktower or Farmleigh Clock Tower was erected at 1880. It is 37 metres in height and the walls are 1.22 metres thick at the ground reducing as it ascends. The tower itself has a water tank inside that contains more than 8000 litres, enough to provide private water supply for the Farmeligh estate.

And on its top a weathercock
To show the people Castleknock"

The estate are highly surrounded by big trees which made it more pleasing to human eyes. On summer days, people can lay down their mats and have a picnic anywhere under the tree. On autumn, don't forget your camera as the beauty still exists in every falling leaf.
|Even on autumn, flowers are blooming.|
Winter is just around the corner evident by the trees bearing no leaves at all.

All these photos were taken around the lovely Farmleigh House and Gardens at Phoenix Park. These are the results of a good Sunday walk in the park alone. Well done my dear.
