Sign in The Garden of the Senses, Sneem, Kerry.
While on holiday in Kerry recently we visited some gardens that were open to the public. The Garden of the Senses is a lovely garden to stroll around on a sunny day, although I would like to go back there in June when the roses are all out.
The Garden of the Senses has some lovely sculptures and signs . . .
and some beautiful roses . . .
I loved this carved seat perfectly placed among the ferns and ivy . . . very Lord of the Rings . . .
In a world where everyone is so busy and life can get somewhat frazzled it is so nice to wander through a garden - slowly, carefree and drink in the scents, sounds and colours of life. It was a lovely quiet stroll in the sunshine of marveling at the sculptures, admiring the willow tunnel and gently moving from rose to rose to capture each sweet scent. Our little stroll took not much more than half an hour but we left smiling, holding hands and relaxed. Now that I'm back to work and there aren't enough hours in the day to finish my ever expanding to do list, I'm trying to hold on to that carefree feeling and to remind myself that even if I'm really busy that it's good to stop and smell the roses - literally!!!!
