Reenadinna Yew Wood

Reenadina Yew Wood ~ Killarney National Forest ~ Co. Kerry, Ireland

I just noticed, on my post editing interface I can insert photographs from Flickr.com — this is not a function on wordpress.com, so it is probably connected with a plugin I installed a long time ago and recently upgraded.

This is a photo of a stand of yew trees in one of the only ancient yew forests left in Europe. It is located within Killarney National Park and is one of the places I insisted on visiting. The magic you feel while surrounded by gnarled yews on mossy hills is very strong. Even folks who don’t believe in fairies come away with a little more understanding of the folks who do.

    This is so incredibly beautiful.

    BTW, what do you mean “folks who don’t believe in fairies”?

    Doesn’t everyone believe in fairies?
