It's March when everyone is a little bit Irish, so I'm celebrating with "watery" photos from a gardening tour of Ireland that I went on about 10 years ago. These three photos feature the River Vartry in Mount Usher Gardens in County Wicklow. The gardens are Robinsonian in style because of their naturalistic design. William Robinson was a late 1800s Irish garden designer who departed from the more formal plantings of the time and emphasized a more natural plan where many species of plants from all over the world are planted closely together. In the last two photos you see that the plants and trees almost meet over parts of the river creating magical shadows and reflections on the water.
