Botanic gardens: photo
This is a photograph of one of the Richard Turner designed glasshouses in the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin. The gardens are a wonderful resource, and are well appreciated by the many visitors – including this rather cute group of a mother with four daughters.
It is my plea that amenities like the Botanic Gardens are protected during the current difficult times economically. They are a haven from the city and are enjoyed by individuals and families who come for a walk with just a little bit of something different thrown in. But they are also a place of learning, scholarship and experiment. Right now the National Botanic Gardens are in very good shape and beautifully managed. May it stay that way.
