Italian Garden on Ilnacullen
I had masses of photos from Ilnacullen, a small island in the Bay of Bantry. Every type of flower, every type of weather, seals, trees, the lot. Unfortunately this is the only one I've got left, due to a fight with my computer. I learned the value of back-ups that day!
Anyway, the island of Ilnacullen lies in the Bay of Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland. The only way to get there is by ferry and on the way there, you will almost always see seals. At the right time of year you will even see seal-pups! After you've arrived on the island, there are flowers and plants everywhere and finding the most beautiful is a daunting task. There were two areas of the island I really loved and the Italian Garden was one of them. I could imagine myself sitting at the far end of the photo, reading a book, enjoying a glass of wine or talking to friends. The gardening I would leave to a hunky gardener of course, no point in getting my hands dirty doing something I know nothing about! And if I can afford a garden like this, I can also afford a gardener I think!
