Altamont Gardens

I’m really lucky to have this wonderful garden and wilderness area just 15 minutes from my home. With free entrance, it comprises a large area of formal gardens, as well as a larger area of nature reserve, comprising part of the left bank of the Slaney River.

  1. Enjoyed this visit to Altamont Gardens. Each of your pics is really nice, with the reflective pool being quite beautiful. Thanks for sharing. We have spiderwort in abundance.

  2. You got nice photo-captures Norman…It’s good to see that somehow you can blog articles like this aside from quizzes.. You deserve my upvote..Congrats Norman πŸ™‚

  3. I saw the heading photo before I pulled the story up. I thought it was one of those photos that is cut in thirds by a frame. I was really delighted when I pulled up the story. It was real, great framing there Norman. It’s good to see you showing everyone what I have known for years now. You are a great photographer.

  4. ” bioindicators for the detection of environmental mutagens.” I would say that it means that if there are mutations in the environment, this plant will show it in some way. Great pictures and thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you, Rachael. It was late when I posted this, and my brain was really only fit for sleep, so I appreciate your tentative explanation – which seems to make sense!
