Springtime in Dublin,Trip to the City to get the Manure.
I went into the City to get a few Plants and some Manure for the Garden as it is that time of the Year when things start to grow again. It is great to see all the Cyclists on the Road now instead of the way it was ten Years ago with few if any one on a Bike. When you arrive at the Traffic Lights now you are surrounded by a Gaggle of Cyclists and you can strike up a conversation about all the problems with bad Drivers and Potholes and the bad Infrastructure in Dublin. There is a Community of Cyclists in Dublin now it is great.
