I had expected that Ireland would reveal itself in many shades of green, but I hadn't expected the brightly hued homes and shops we saw all over the place. It surprised me at first, but then I realized it was the logical complement to all the green and a brilliant (literally and figuratively!) antidote to the gray mists and rains that often cloak the isle. My penchant for color was satisfied and then some!
Colors like these could certainly do wonders for one's outlook on a dreary day, 'eh?
