signs and sights

is part of Swan Park in Buncrana.  It is closed now due to flooding during one of the storms we had earlier.  There's a lot of work to be done before it will open again to the public.  As you walk through the trail, you see signs on little plaques identifying the different trees, leaves and plants.  Also there are some for animal tracks.  It's a very easy and nice walk.  These photos were taken in the summer of 2016 on one of our trips to Buncrana.  We're told we are going experience some crappy weather this week with snow, sleet or rain plus it's going to be colder.  So this is a good time to show these summer images.






Bluebells, the word at the bottom means blue clover

  11. A truly fascinating place to walk. There's so much of interest. Love that path heading down and the various "tiles" with the flora and fauna engraved on them. Hope the weather isn't too bad. I always hated bad weather this time of year!

  14. What a great place to explore. I hope it is opened up again for summer walking. Too bad about your weather. It seems like there are places where winter just doesn't want to let go.

  25. It looks like a very appealing place to walk. I hope it wasn't too badly damaged. And I hope, too, that your weather predictions prove wrong. Don't you think it would be nice around now to start getting some more springlike days?

  27. Nice to remember summer when you are having to wait so long for spring this year. Those marker signs are great ...whether informative or whimsical they are beautifully done without detracting from the natural beauty of the trail.
