National Botanic Gardens of Ireland

I was in Dublin for the weekend and I happened to visit the National Botanic Gardens as they were nearby. I often bring my camera with me to most places but I’m usually way too lazy to take any pictures. However, the sun was shining and there were so many good photo opportunities that I just couldn’t help myself... fifty five photos later.

I have included a few low-res samples below but if you would like to check out the rest in all of their hi-res glory then simply click here.

Nice pictures, it looks like you picked a good day to be in the botanic gardens!
 
Thanks betty. Yes, it was a nice sunny afternoon and I just couldn't help myself! :-)
 
Hmm, you sure took a lot of photos. Did you actually enjoy the day or did you just spend it behind the camera? (Ok, slightly tongue-in-cheek here...) Great shots, particularly like the symmetry of the first one.
 
I soooo love the pics of the rare strain of black grass (gothum grassum) you can see in pics 4,5 and 6. Normally this is a nocturnal species that i noticed sprouts in my lawn at nite but at daybreak its gone! So you were very lucky to see it in daytime! I tried pluckin some at night but it quickly dies and turns green.
 
Hello!
Im from Saudi Arabia and was researching my family tree and i stumbled on your page which seems to be a community for the Said family in Ireland? So i wonder if any of you know of a descendant Said? possible anything about Donal Said or Pure Cork Boy Said, a strange name, it must be irish?
