My running week went exactly as planned. In other words, I had a nice long rest from it all.
It worked out well too coinciding, as it did, with a major week at work and a full blown headcold. I needed the break on some front.
I did put the head out a couple of times, though. And one of those trips was to Ardgillen park. Teen Girl, gasp, asked to go running with me and Ardgillen fitted the bill. With all it`s colour and wonderful views, it`s a lovely place to run. Teen Girl wouldn`t stretch too far beyond a two mile trot, but that was fine with me too.
After the run, I headed back down to take a few pictures of the place. I was very impressed by the sight of all those flowers in bloom as I hadn`t expected to see quite so many at this time of the year.
But, as you can tell from the captions, gardening isn`t my forte. There are so many plants that I failed to identify. And no, don`t be impressed by those I have captioned correctly. I photographed any plant identity tabs I`d found in advance of snapping the related plant.
If you can identify any of the unlabelled ones, I`d really appreciate it. I`ve numbered them in the hope that it would make your task a little easier.
It`s inspired me to dig up a new shrub bed at the Chook House and maybe have some similar colour on display next autumn. But I`ll need to know what I`m looking for first,if I am ever to find it.
Here`s hoping I find my fitness again this week too. as I hit the road again.
