Dahlia Delight - David Corscadden

People are used to having guilty pleasures. Be it a bar of chocolate or watching tv at night. For gardeners however guilty pleasures tend to be plants. And mine is dahlias. While many people will see them as a very old fashioned plant I think they are a fantastic flower and truly love when I come across a new one.

A Visit To The Botanic Gardens - David Corscadden

It has been a long time since I spent an afternoon at the Botanic Gardens in Dublin but this weekend I got to spend a sun filled afternoon exploring the greenhouses and gardens there.

Bloom 2016. The ‘Your Name Here’ Wedding Garden

I have always seen gardens a lot like falling or being in love, or a feeling, or emotion, of sorts. Like that moment when you first kissed and Erma Franklin or Wilson began singing secretly in your head for no apparent reason.
