St. Brigit’s Garden, Galway, Ireland

In Galway, a lovely area of the world to begin with, an extraordinary garden celebrating the four seasons, and dedicated to Ireland’s patron saint, St. Brigit (or Brighid) has been carved out of agricultural land. In fact, St. Brigit’s garden celebrates the cycles of the Celtic year, so it is segmented into areas representing each high festival: Samhain, Imbolc, Beltaine and Lughnasa. I have to say that in spite of how beautiful the gardens are, I was surprised to find a lily pond in the area dedicated to Samhain (end of harvest, beginning of winter).
