Bibliography for Travels in Ireland

While simular to Europain gardens, Irish gardens usually have a slight twist, which makes them unique and especially attractive.  The garden at the Dublin Castle is a stronge example of this trait. As you can see, the flat lawn inside a low, circular, walled area is repeatedly bisected by narrow black swirls., much like a marbled cake. If you look closely, at the beginning of the swirl is a face much like a stylized snake.

fountain in Dublin Castle Garden

Included in the garden is, I think, one of most beautiful garden ornaments I have seen, it appears to be a snail made of natural materials such as quartz or amethyst or colored glass, I am not sure which, but it truly shines since there does’t appear to be any imperfections, as you can see.

Further in the garden is another small, unusual pond with a back wall of colored mosaics representing fish and eels or snakes.
