You can taste the air! It looks amazing. Yeah..so sorta kinda jealous at the moment. :)

Lovely photo. Most of those trees look quite young; maybe 20-30 years old max. Were they planted, or self-sewn on a patch of unused land?

Suzanne,

Don't be too jealous: through most of the winter here, everything looks Gothic and bleak, like something out of Cormac McCarthy's The Road. In the spring and summer, though, there are days that look like postcards.

One Pony,

Good question: that photo is of Bealkelly Wood in Tuamgraney, County Clare, owned by one Del Harding. Del's quite a character, living off the land there for 20 years. He bought the land then, and might well have planted those trees himself.

Your cathedral metaphor seems apt.
