Ireland: Walled Victorian Gardens at Kylemore Abbey (Connemara, Ireland) captured my joy of gardening.  I enjoyed exploring the different plants and designs. Although the classic Victorian Walled Garden design is not my personal preference, I loved how the gardens used color and interesting focal points. Many people skip the gardens and they miss a wonderful restful diversion.

Shell Grotto at Margate-In 1835 Mr James Newlove lowered his son Joshua into a hole in the ground that had appeared during the digging of a duck pond. Joshua emerged describing tunnels covered with shells. He had discovered 70ft of winding underground passages leading to an oblong chamber, its walls decorated with strange symbols mosaiced in millions of shells. Nobody can explain who built this amazing place, or why.
