La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

Beautiful Irish Skies

I love a blue sky as much as the next person, but there is something to be said for the beautiful Irish skies.











I find the sky absolutely fascinating and when I sit in the kitchen (most of my time) I regularly look up. There are a whole lot of cracking cloud formations to be spotted and my camera always at hand.
All these photos were taken from just outside the house. 

Who needs forever blue skies ?
Not me.

  3. I always say people spend too much time looking down. at phones, what ever...

    When in the towns I always spend ages looking up at the buildings. You miss not only the sky, but also the fabulous architecture of days gone by.

    What lovely pictures

    1. Thank goodness I only use my phone for phoning (sporadically).
      Generally, people look but are not seeing the beauty that's around them. x
