Hello, lovely creepies!
Bitty Blythe and I made it to Ireland and are getting settled in. We did some exploring around Dublin City. After walking around for a while, we stumbled into St. Stephen’s Green.
This beautiful park in the middle of a busy city was an instant relief from the hustle and bustle. I love Dublin, and I love city days, but I’m a feral forest girl at heart, and so is Bitty Blythe. So, it was wonderful to find some calm, duck ponds, and pretty trees.
We started off taking a rest on some rocks under a tree. It was a partly cloudy day, which is my favorite kind. It makes everything moody and mysterious.
And then we found some mysterious paths and stairs that looked straight out of fairyland. Bitty is definitely not up to any mischief. Not at all. Certainly.
Bitty ran ahead up the stairs and I had to hunt for her. She is sweet but not always well-behaved, which only makes me like her more. The suspicion that she’s fae grows deeper. This is where I found her:
She led me to a memorial for one of my favorite Irish poets, W. B. Yeats. Now, I know that Yeats is frustrating in many areas (if you’re into Irish folklore and mythology like I am, you’ll understand why, never mind the classism,) but he and I share a love of the Aos Sídhe and fairies. His work was a key part of my love of Ireland. He’s messy and weird, but I love his writing.
We packed it up just as it started to rain and headed home, looking forward to our next adventure!
Bitty Blythe and her clothes came from this shop: This Is Blythe
