The hawthorn bush or tree is very common in Ireland and it was classified in early Irish writing as the Commoner of the Wood. There is a great crop of haws in hedgerows around the countryside at present and the haws can be eaten.The hawthorn is associated with the ' little people ' or fairies and with magical powers. For these reasons the hawthorn, in particular the 'lone bush', has always been regarded with a mixture of fear and respect and there are many folk beliefs and customs associated with the hawthorn.

We recently enjoyed a lovely holiday in Croatia and spent some time in Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a beautiful,historic walled city. The Maritime museum was very interesting and I spotted photographs of two ships built in Belfast among many other interesting exhibits. The Natural History Museum was also interesting. The coastline is stunningly beautiful and a lovely trip is to travel 20km along the coast from Dubrovnik to Cavtat,a pretty coastal town with a picturesque harbour. When you are there it is worth visiting Bukovac House which is dedicated to the memory of one of Croatia's most famous painters, Vlaho Bukovac.
The weather in October was glorious.

I recently visited the Terry Bradley Art Gallery on High Street, Bangor. Terry is a Belfast- born contemporary artist and he has captured the colourful characters from the Belfast Dockland area known as Sailortown. His work also features strong and powerful women. He has just completed a commission for the Dead Rabbit in New York, officially the best bar in the world. You can view his latest work at his gallery in Bangor

I recently visited the Ulster Museum to see Dippy the Diplodocus skeleton. You can see this iconic dinosaur dating back around 150 million years at the Museum until January 6th 2019. The skeleton is 26 metres long. There are lots of fun activities for children and there are interesting art and history exhibitions on other levels in the Museum. Entry is free and it is an excellent museum, well worth a visit.
