Irish Garden Week - Lakemount in County Cork



~ click on collage to enlarge ~

Irish Garden Week - in celebration of St. Paddy's Day this week, when we all claim to be a bit Irish, thought I would share some photos from a 1998 garden tour of Ireland.  This is Lakemount in County Cork.  Brian Cross (in wellies) is the garden designer/artist, assisted by "Violet".  Highlights:  fantastic mixed shrub borders, clipped beech hedges with a view, simply stunning arrangement of containers and plants, and a green velvet lawn.

Here are a few more closeups of the garden, including the assistant gardener :-) :






Check back in periodically for the rest of the week and I'll share some different gardens, traveling southwest from Dublin.  Slainte!
