Early summer at Wexford Beach Homes

The exuberance of the Wexford Countryside just now in mid July is breathtaking

The Hawthorn trees or Sceachs are laden with soft white and pink blossom arching over the lacy white wild flowers in the hedgerows.

And it is the year of the Buttercup!  They have been thrown over the fields with generous hands like we have never seen. Their shiny yellow faces triumphantly lifted to the wonderful sunshine of the past few weeks.  The green and yellow patterns of the fields making a carpet for the very content cows.

Through this wonderful lushness the Cuckoo has been heard constantly in the fields behind Morriscastle. The call is an essential sound of summer that has been rarer in recent years.

To my amazement younger members of staff here at Wexford Beach Homes have never heard the rhyme about the Cuckoo with which I have grown up.

‘The Cuckoo comes in April, The Cuckoo comes in May, The Cuckoo in June but in July she flies away”

Nor did they know the frothy foam seen on plants in the hedgerows was confidently known and believed to be Cuckoo Spit.

Last evening I walked through the lanes around Ballyconnigar rich with the scents of a warm summer evening past the lovely old traditional Wexford Cottages solid and strong and closely knit into the land they served.

Some have been converted into Wexford Holiday Cottages with great sensitivity and obviously provide a hidden retreat for people with hectic lives. Some remain calmly untouched under their thatched roofs.

Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

I’m not sure why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
