Bloom in The Phoenix Park

Last weekend Bloom was on in the Phoenix Park. I was to go on Thursday but it rained, then I was to go on Sunday but it rained some more. Early on Monday morning the sun came out and I was outside the gate waiting on it to open.

  2. What lovely photographs, though I had assumed you were writing about James Joyce, LOL. I remember celebrating Blooms day when I was at university:-)

  3. It looks like a lovely day out. I'm glad that the weather eventually cooperated. Everything in the walled garden looks to be thriving.
