Burren, County Clare

A memory of a Burren walk 

Searching for watercolour paper recently, the butterfly stickers in the craft section drew me right back in time.  Two years ago I was walking in the Burren near Mullaghmore.  

I approached what I thought was a carpet of mauve flowers in the limestone and grasses. . .

 

As I drew near the 'carpet' took off- hundreds of tiny moths in a cloud of pale blue. 

A few yards away another gathering of pale pink covering the ground erupted into flight.
