It was such a nice today that we decided to go to the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin. In particular, I wanted to see the magnolias (though I wasn't sure if they had any there - they do). But there was so much more to see. It's a hidden gem. The entrance to the gardens is free, and the carpark is €2. I took lots of pictures of trees - plenty of drawing and painting projects in the making. The main greenhouse is gorgeous.And there were lots of people around, sitting on benches or in the grass - it felt like being in Central park.
Here is a picture of a succulent of some sort in the Cacti House. I love the subtle colours:
