ramblings of a plant lover


Call me partial, but every Irish gardener should visit the homeland and awaken the green thumb within. Ireland is the home of my ancestral roots and it’s darn pretty! Why did my relatives decide to move anyway? The gardens and antiquated ambience of Bunratty village, a historical tourist village, was one of many favourite memories. We also visited the Japanese Garden at the Dublin Stud Farm – enchanting!





Those French know how to do it! Some of the most beautiful gardens in the world are nestled in the countryside of France. From the opulent gardens of Versailles to a lovely hotel court garden right in the middle of busy Avignon.
