The Iveagh Gardens

Popped over to the Iveagh Gardens for lunch. Life is pretty sweet when you can just pop over to a place like this and hang out for an hour of peace and quiet.

Yesterday I took short detour over to Hanover Square and Windmill Lane on the way to work. The quay side walks in Dublin are definitely getting that springtime feeling, lots of green now and we’re way past peak blossom.

Windmill lane is as busy as ever, Eoin ( http://artbyeoin.com/ ) has been adding some depth to the palimpsest.

Over on Hanover Quay I was hoping to find these stencils that I knew Solus (http://www.solusstreetart.com/ ) had painted recently. Don’t know how I missed them last friday but there you are, I’m not as observant as I thought I was.

I was intrigues by that “Free Herbs” weirdness that you can see in the middle of the shot. This is a new thing on me but is apparently not that odd. A local organisation called Meitheal seemed to be talking about it last year and Mabos coordinated this particularly blitz on Good Friday last ( also https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mabos/296035950507748 & https://www.facebook.com/events/745102592178706/ ). Here’s a close up. Yep, just herbs – go make some fresh food dude!

I’ll leave the final word to Solus.
