St Patrick’s Day Celtic Garden Design Inspiration

March 8, 2015

When 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 Go Crazy For‘) – 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.

This here is a revived post from way back 2009 (Sometimes I can’t believe how long this blog has been a part of my life) where I gathered some Celtic and Irish garden design inspirations and garden details from Flickr to get you in the mood.
