Inspiration in Ireland

I had the most wonderful trip to Ireland this spring and despite grey weather was in awe of the beautiful landscape. What better place to get inspired to garden and be creative again. From the glamour of Kylemore Abbey and it's lakeside swimming pool and walled garden with lush spring flower beds, inspiration was around every corner.

Look at those turquoise doors and gates! The entrance to the walled gardens was this magnificent door with it's black iron hardware and the colour was repeated in the gate and trim of the gardener's cottage. I'm almost glad the sun stayed hidden behind the mist as the colours in the garden where more vibrant in contrast to the grey weather and dampened stone. 

That was just day two on the trip! I'm still in creative brain overload. More to share another day...
