This afternoon, along with a friendly mix of NUI Galway students and staff, Jon and I left the confines of the city of Galway to visit the lovely St. Brigit’s Garden, a 30-minute drive away.

The garden showcased native Irish plants and landscapes and introduced us to some ancient Celtic seasons and celebrations. Additionally, an expert gardener gave us a tour of herbs used for various healing remedies. I’m especially excited to try feverfew, a plant which purportedly keeps migraine headaches away!

The visit gave me a chance to spend some much needed time with my camera. Here a couple of my favorite shots from the afternoon.

The garden was also home to a wishing tree. We found a number of sweet and poignant wishes fluttering in the wind

The garden had a number of these beautiful woven swings. So much fun!


Finally, two tree shots.
