Damsel to Damsel – Nature Poetry and Photography

I love writing nature poetry and have been known to dabble in a spot of photography. So, I decided to combine the two in this weekend blog post. My husband George is responsible for the stunning picture of two damselflies, taken at the lily pond in the gardens at Mount Congreve.

The Secret Gardens at Mount Congreve

We were in Waterford when we got the call. It was Mum-in-law, phoning to tell us that the gardens at Mount Congreve would be open to the public, that afternoon. As we were on the way back from a business shopping trip to my husband’s office, work beckoned. But the gardens demanded our attention. We had never seen them. It would be something to blog about.
