I have not had the luck of going to Ireland though I am half Irish, my sister has and althoug she is not a garden geek like myself, she did say they had some of the most beautiful, lush and inspiring landscapes she had seen. So today I will give you some images to drool over and wish you were lounging on a grassy knoll looking at the sheep grazing in the feilds (with a Guinness in hand of course)!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
I would love to be reading a book on this stone terrace! What a beautiful setting. Photo from /www.brigitsgarden.ie/
This gorgeous photo from www.manorhousehotels.com a great look at some Irish gardens and perhaps plan a visit.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
An image from www.knockabbeycastle.com yet another place to put on the Ireland list!
And and Irish toast to send you on your way:
May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
