PhotoPrompt: Blarney Manor House and Tree

Blarney Manor House, Cork County, Ireland

This eerie tree is/was near the Blarney Castle, Co. Cork, Ireland.  The house in the background is Blarney Manor House, owned and occupied by the Lord of Blarney and his family. 

In a land that is so very green that it sometimes overwhelms the senses, this tree is starkly void of leaves and seemingly of life.

Using this photo as inspiration, write anything you wish—prose, poetry, flash fiction—anything.  Link it back to this site.  On the right sidebar are frequent participants in Monday PhotoPrompt writing; click on those and see what other inspirations you might find.

Happy writing!

    1. Yes, it sure does! That is why it is so interesting. Even the lower growth is gnarled.

  2. Dear Susan, I'm wondering how the word "blarney" and "kissing the blarney stone" are connected to this eerie dwelling and its surroundings. Peace.

    1. This tree and the manor house in the back are on the Blarney Castle grounds. The current Lord of Blarney occupied the house when this photo was taken.

  5. Are you sure this photo was taken in Ireland? I think it is a time warp from Transilvania...
