A totally natural garden and from where I got my avatar.







A garden needs interaction between shapes and / or colours and then it needs, a soul / to imbue you with empathy to it. Wow! Getting carried away here! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Where is that, kindredspirit ?
There is a special tranquillity about it.

½ a mile on the righthand side, on the Tuamgraney Road, heading north from Killaloe in Co. Clare.

A small signpost marks the path into it.

A lot of men must have spent a long time building up the embankment around it.

Is it natural or built?

It was built by men just before the time of Brian Boru.

It's very tranquil now but obviously wouldn't have been, in those times.

Cool. I knew Brian Boru's fort was near Killaloo, but never knew how beautiful it was. Must make a trip down.
Very good Buckley Nurseries near there too.
