Season Of Mists And Mellow Fruitfulness
17th Sep 2015
This is how Keats describes autumn in his poem ‘Ode to Autumn’
Here at the Japanese Gardens and St. Fiachra’s Garden we have a lot more than mists to attract you.
Autumn is one of the most beautiful times in both these gardens with the wonderful vibrant reds and oranges of the Japanese Maples, deciduous Azaleas (Japanese garden) and more unusual trees such as Crataegus persimilis prunifolia ( St Fiachra’s Garden) to say nothing of the Autumn Crocuses [Meadow saffron] and brilliant yellow foliage of the Taxodium and Larix trees (Irish National Stud grounds).
This fleeting moment of Conkers, winged Maple seeds, rustling leaves and brilliant co-lour should not be missed.
Stroll around with a cup of hot chocolate, and experience the natural beauty of autumn in all its glory.
What could be more enjoyable?
