Fairy Country

Just back from a weekend in Yeats Country (Sligo) where I got to look at herbs growing in the rain. (My wife Jacks is training to be a master herbalist.) This is the fairy capital of Ireland whatever they try to tell you about the Boyne Valley, but it was too wet for them to come out. Met several nice Americans, however -- they come out in all weathers -- and stayed in an utterly delightful country house, Temple House, the history of which goes all the way back to the Knights Templar. Romantic or what? One of these long summer days I'll have to get to editing Faerie Lord. But not yet... not yet...
