Oakfield Park Upper Garden
A third post on Oakfield Park, near Raphoe, Co. Donegal, this time with images from the upper gardens.
A pond in the upper gardens, with the “Nymphaeum” and the main house at the top of the hill.
Just outside the walled garden at the house. The garden is open, but the house itself is private.
Inside the walled garden.
Sculpture in the walled garden.
Flowers in the walled garden.
Another sculpture in the walled garden.
Looking down to the “Nymphaeum” from near the house.
A wonderfully gnarled old tree.
Bluebells in the “Backwoods”.
A glimpse of the “Nymphaeum” through the trees. The huge lower bough on this tree has to be supported by a metal post.
A last look at the “Nymphaeum” as we exited the woods.
