JGarden Description:From Mr. Whiskey:
"Situated in the hills of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, this garden has been a labour of love since 1995 when the first sod for the pond was dug.

Encompassing about 3/4 of an acre it consists of a Dry Garden, Tea Garden, Stroll Garden, and Water and Rock Garden.

A planting of Japanese Maples, bamboos, grasses, ferns, Ginko Biloba, Hinoki Cypress,a giant Gunnera, some tree ferns from Tasmania (dickonsonia), Rhododendrons, Azaleas, and many native species add up to an interesting and indeed spectacular garden.

A number of granite Japanese ornaments complete the picture for the visitor."

See the web site for more information on the garden and how it was constructed. 




With the south wind a gentle goddess came.
She soaked the bronze, she soaked the fountain,
She soaked the swallow's belly and its feathers of gold.
She hugged the tide, lapped the sand, drank the fish.
Secretly she soaked the temple, the bath-house, the theatre,
The confusion of her platinum lyre --
  the tongue of the goddess -- secretly.
Soaked my tongue.
