While my previous posts have been largely avoiding the Castle itself, I thought I should throw in a few more images of the castle to prove I didn’t just happen to be wandering in a nearby garden centre. Of course I should underline that the square medieval castle isn’t the only old building around. On one flank sits a couple of round towers, while the stables behind act as tea rooms.
If you look carefully at Castle Perspective you will see figures at the castle top, providing scale to the dimensions. All of the flowers were in the garden leading to the castle using the wheelchair walkway.
Of course this is just a small selection of the flora to be found. There will be more to come this week, including the Lake, Blarney House, more of the gardens and a bit of fauna.
