I’ve only recently discovered these gardens. There is definitely an air of tranquillity about the whole site. The circular lines are offset well by the parallels created by the horizontals of stairs and interlinking trellis timbers. The memorial gardens were designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens specifically to commemorate the Irish who served and fell in the First World War. Do click on the Wiki link to read more about the history of the gardens. Me, I know I’ll be visiting more often in the spring and summer, especially to appreciate the rose gardens…
