Pattern

Patterns and shapes are everywhere in Nature.  Today, we visited Belvedere House and Gardens in Co Westmeath.  Once a country villa, Belvedere is now owned and managed by the local council. You can visit the house, enjoy lovely woodland walks and a fairy garden. But for me the highlight was the walled garden. There was a small vegetable garden, an ornamental pond, fruit trees and some beautiful flowers beds. Here colour, shapes and patterns blended and did everything to please the eye.

I was also happy to see many pollinators,  mostly honey bees but also three different bumblebees species. The honeybees were visiting the pond to gather water.  It is the first time I have witnessed this, though I have read about it.

      Thank you Tina – it was a lovely garden. I could easily have spent another hour there with my camera.
