After our visit to Glasnevin Cemetery, we continued on to the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland. They were founded in 1795 and are now home to 20,000 living plants. The gardens act as a type of ‘Noah’s Ark’ for plants. Over 300 endangered plant species are housed here, including 6 that are already extinct in the wild.
We spent a peaceful hour or two wandering through the various Victorian glasshouses. I had fun playing around with my new camera (my Christmas gift from Mr. Fluffy Tufts)!
Here are a few of my favourite images:
