When home in Ireland at the start of September I took the opportunity to take a few photo's of my brother's beautiful garden. The garden is a year old but to walk around it you would scarcely believe it. Here we go.
Note: Click on any of the photos for a larger version.

"Getting there" a shabby wall on its way to being brightened up

Here's what the garden looked like last year
As you can see it is an amazing transformation. The birds, bees and butterflies love it also.
Hope you enjoyed this tour of just one beautiful Irish garden!
