[ a weekend afternoon at St. Stephen's Green ]

I HOPE YOU all had a lovely weekend! It was a sunny, crisp fall day on Saturday, so I decided to head into Dublin's city centre for a walk.

St. Stephen's Green is a 22 acre park in the heart of Dublin and is a hub for tourists and locals alike. The thing I love about it on Saturdays is that the iron railings surrounding it play host to local artists to display and sell their art. Artwork goes all around the perimeter so it's like one really long gallery.


After touring the "gallery" there are horse & carriages waiting to take people to tour the streets.


A walk through the park is pretty at this time of year - the leaves are just starting to fall and it's a lovely spot to feed the birds and enjoy a picnic.


I love the ivy on the old Georgian buildings when it changes colour for fall.


A browse through some shops on Grafton Street and the shopping centre...



...then it was time for a little sweet for my trip home. What a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
