Reckles

Yesterday we spent some hours helping in my ma’s bog, stacking or making reckles.

Calm, invigorating, backbreaking work. The Bog is a very peaceful place to be.

The sequence by which the turf will co-operate is kinda fascinating and when you turn it it’s curious. Lumps of pink granite in some sods.

All hail to the Hardy Mayo women!
