This is an entry for the contest: New Challenge DANDELION WISHES posted by :iconcastle-of-manips:

This is one of my main wishes: Back to Ireland again. I wish I was as easier as to blow a dandelion and that became true.
I want to represent in the picture the three colors of their flag: green, white and orange. And any of the most iconic elements: the shamrocks, the clovers, The celtic cross, the red head woman and something which called my attention the first time I was there: the spongy sheeps. In Spain they are thinner!!! It must be they have less green to eat!

This looks quite lovely in the countryside I think the sheep population outnumbers the humans XD this manipulation looks very magical and I get the feeling of being on the sea side cliffs looking for birds.

Thank you. The first time I was in Ireland I have two surprises. One of them was the size of the sheeps! They are really fat!!. In Spain they are thinner. (Maybe they don't eat green as good as in Ireland. (XD) The other one was that the fields are green. I live in Madrid and the centre of Spain is brown and yellow, very similar to a desert. If you want to see green you have to go to the north. So when I think in the countryside here I think in a yellow place. But in Ireland, The Emerald Island is green of course. It is really beautiful to watch the approaching before landing from an aircraft. A magical island among clouds and myst with all fields in different shades of green.

Thanks Patricia. Ireland is really pretty. It´s called Emerald Island. All of it is green. When you are approaching by aircraft you can see it surrounded by myst and clouds and it is divided in squares (fields) and all of them have different shades of green. Curious thing in a place which almost has not trees because they were chopped by England during the 8 centuries the Irish were dominated by them.

Totally love it, had family move from Tipperary to Wales in the 1700s/1800s........must find out more about those guys

I was going four years ago for three years and a half once every two months. I had a Irish boyfriend I was going to live with. We bought a house in Leixlip, county Cill Dara (Kildare). But the things went wrong. I miss Ireland a lot. It´s only two hours ten min from Madrid by plane but when I have money I haven´t days off, when I have friends to go with I haven´t money, when I have days off I haven´t friends to go....and so on. I have good friends there but I meet them in Madrid. And I ´ve told myself that I´ll go in October to spend Halloween there and to collect the rest of my things which are in the house still.
Tipperary.... They have a good water. Don´t you know anything about your Irish  family to Wales?

Ouch not good, anyway you can take the house on yourself and live there permanently? 

Only found out by chance when dad started going through the family tree.......it's my mothers mothers fathers mothers family and from how nan reacted when she was told she had no ideas which probably means her father (my great grandfather) didn't know either. Could explain his ginger hair and the red heads (various shades) in the family and his temprement, he was an absolute darling til someone crossed his path and got him annoyed/angry......worst thing ever you could do

No, it was his house. He paid for it. 
When a person had a unhappy childhood is a troubled adult. His family was a big disaster. I cannot tell things here but remember me to tell them in other time by note. One day he was a wonderful man and next day he was a demon. Sometimes I thought that if I went to Ireland to live my life would have been like to walk on the flames in the hell. That´s why I was delaying the moment. And he had horrible friends there, (I called them the Spanish cockroaches, because they were Spanish), who were breaking an edge all the time. And her decided listened to them. He had a stupid mind in his stupid Irish potato head. At end he recognised I was a "very good person" because He had not any argument against me. Pffff!!!

I love that pic because I love to blow dandelions.  That sheep is cute too, how he's looking straight at the camera.

Thank you Allison. I love the Irish sheeps. They are spongy and fat. They are very well fed. I have to confess you one thing. I´m not sure to have seen a dandelion anytime. When I was a girl I lived in a street surrounded by a deep an big wood and I remember any kind of plants and trees but not dandelions (diente de león in Spanish). I always thought they grow in high mountains. (That´s what I understood after watch a cartoon called Heidi who was very famous here when I was twelve. I think you know the story, about a girl who lives in Los Alpes with her grandfather).

Dandelions grow everywhere here.  When I was little, my yard was full of them.  I remember Heidi.  My family has the movie where Shirley Temple plays Heidi.

I referred to cartoon japanese serial. It was so looooooong. Hundred and hundred chapters. It was very famous in the last 70,s

That cartoon was probably based on the same story as the movie I'm talking about.  In the movie, Heidi was sent to live with her grandfather in the Alps, and he originally didn't want her but then came to love her.  Then later her aunt who had taken her to her grandfather kidnapped her away from him and took her to live with a rich girl named Clara who couldn't walk.  Clara's governess didn't like Heidi and eventually tried to sell her to the gypsies, but Heidi's grandfather had come down off the mountains to find her and was able to rescue her.

Both of them, cartoon and film are based in a book: Heidi. The author is Juana Spiry
