Ireland - Flora

I was amazed at all the flowers still in bloom in Ireland. Because of all the rain they had during the summer, and the relatively mild temperatures, the flowers were still very vibrant.

Most of these photos were taken in the walled Victorian Garden at Kylemore Abbey, up in the Connemara area. Check out the link to see more about this fascinating place.

I put these three photos through
the watercolor and drybrush
filters in Photoshop.

Calligraphic Ivy!
This ivy was growing up the walls of Ballynahinch Castle, where my mom and I stayed for two nights. An exquisitely beautiful place!!!

Speaking of ivy, I love when it grows out of little cracks in rocks.
