The Garden Lover has a choice of glorious gardens to visit in Ireland. All different in size, design and atmosphere. Here are 9 of my favourites from across the country:
Airfield House, Dundrum, County Dublin

Caher Bridge Garden, Fanore, County Clare
Glebe Gardens, Baltimore, Co Cork

My jewellery design at deBlaca is inspired by nature and many of my pieces are floral designs in hallmarked silver and gold.
