A secret woodland location? No, this is on the corner of a busy roadway in Ballincollig, it was once a village but is now a satellite town to Cork city.This was a corner of waste ground traversed by pathways from people taking shortcuts across it.I noticed the crocus last year and made a mental note to watch out for the flowers this year.i am not sure who is responsible for the transformation maybe the Tidy Towns committee or the Council, whoever it is should be praised and commended for creating this woodland garden.The hundreds of daffodils in the background are slow opening this year
Houses can be seen in the background, the plot is quite small and the phrase 'small but perfectly formed' comes to mind
One of the busy roads that border two sides of the woodland area.
Some of it is bounded by this natural fencing which stops people from walking across but does not take from the over all simplicity of the area
A close up of a crocus. These will naturalise and increase each year and this little corner will be a carpet of spring colour.

Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone
