St Patrick’s Day Celtic Garden Inspiration

March 8, 2015 | Celtic, Knot Gardens

As I wrote my book last year, I considered so many different styles of gardens to discuss.  There where quite a few that didn’t make the cut for no other reason reason but that there were simply too many.  So, in light of the upcoming holiday of St. Patrick’s Day (which, here in Boston, seems to rank a close second behind Halloween on the list of ‘Holidays That New Englanders Particularly Relish‘) – and because I have a whole list of interesting things to share on the subject of Celtic and Irish inspired garden design, I will be posting a little series of all things related over the next few days.
