I took this photo on Saturday in woodland beside Lough Gartan. I think I have mentioned this place before - is one of my soul-food places. Wild flowers, mosses, lichens, ferns - all grow in profusion there.
Somehow, I doubt whether the most skilled gardener could better this particular example of nature at work.

I understand completely. I went for a woodland walk walk at Russborough House today. My goodness the colours and smells of the Rhodedrendons were indescribable so amazing The old walled garden is being opened now also with the help of volunteers too. Well worth a visit.

I was at Russborough years ago, before the garden restoration started, to see the Beit collection. Somewhere in the newly planted areas is a rose I sponsored for my wife.
It a lovely place and a beautiful area.

'I know a bank where the wild thyme blows...' That looks like the spot! Beautiful. Smile
