The Celts are back!

It's Celtic Festival weekend in Belfast again. Which for those of us living on the Common is a mixed blessing -- because while Celtic music is lovely, hours and hours of it gets a little crazy making. It would not do for me to run screaming out of the house that Loch Lomond* has already been performed 6 previous times in the last 3 hours, now would it? 

You may remember that the true Celtic food vendors last year included pizza and fried dough. This year, this is right across from my front door --

because nothing says Celtic like pit bbq! Of course, we will get our supper from there.

Just below our house is the stage from whence all the Celtic music flows --

It's not really as bad as I make it sound -- well, maybe almost because Celtic music really isn't my thing -- but it is fun to see all the people an the fireworks tonight will be terrific.

Out in the garden, the tomatoes are really taking off. Not signs of red yet but look at these --

Where's the knitting, you ask? Why on the needles of course! Nothing new to show but I will get progress pictures of everything tomorrow. I promise!


* Yeah that one -- you know --

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,

Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond

Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae,

On the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
