Pink perfection – Bloom festival, Dublin June 2011

Just back from a lovely trip to Dublin, thanks to the generous and lovely people at Bord Bia (the Irish Food Board), to visit the Bloom festival,  Now in its fifth year, the show features not only a wealth of Irish artisinal food and drink producers, but also some gorgeous floral displays.  These poppies were in the walled garden in Phoenix Park where the festival took place and looked like they had come to work forgetting to iron their shirts ;)  The festival runs until Monday 6th June and is a lovely way to spend a summer day – well worth a visit.


This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – previously featured  photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots archive  pages.  Photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as gorgeous A3-size2011 CookSister calendars for foodies, for London-loversItalophiles or beach lovers

If you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting in a month other than January, please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements.  They make great gifts, for friends or for yourself.
