We made it to Galway on tuesday. Been hanging out around town and getting ideas for the garden. Visited garden shops and plan to go to brigids garden today. 

I'm trying t of add some pictures to my garden album but can't figure out how to do it. I remember I had problems before but figured it out. Can't this time. Can anyone give me some help so I can get some pictures of our progress into album? 

Thanks, lisa

Hi Lisa  and welcome. Exciting times ahead with planning and shaping the garden. 

Are you using a PC or iPad to upload? 

If you are using an iPad you can't upload an album unfortunately. Only photos in a journal like you have done here. 

Usually you go to photos, select 'create album' and then 'add photos'. But as I say only from a PC , for some reason Apple is not compatible.  I hope that helps.

I'll leave the tech stuff to Jackie! Try and visit Carl Wright at Caher Bridge and Lorna Molony, just outside Galway. Both amazing and inspirational gardens. There's also a garden between the big hotels on Salthill seafront, which was written about in The Irish Garden, though I haven't seen it myself. Good luck!

The important bit is to SAVE the ALBUM!!!!!!

one week and we will finally be in Galway

05 April 2016 03:01:23

We will be in Galway next Tuesday.SO excited. We will have lots of gardening to do and hopefully plenty of time to play too.

the house has a very small patio in front with a very small spot for a tree. Anyone have suggestions for a tree that would do well there. It is west facing right by the street. So needs to stay small and not spread too much. I'll find a picture of the spot and post it.

sassy gardener.

A Crab apple? Nice neat tree with blossom and colourful fruit and you can make jam too! Evereste has lovely red-orange fruits.

My husband and i will be arriving in galway on April 12th. We will have about a month to work on the garden, visit other parts of Ireland and hang out with friends. I have ideas of how I would like the garden to look and once we arrive in Ireland, we will learn more about what our friends would like to see. Hopefully we have similar ideas. We are both very excited to spend a whole month in Ireland and get to know the city of Galway a little better.

Welcome to the site. Im sure you will love Ireland when you get here. Keep us updated on how your project is doing  too

Jackie Jackie 23 February 2016 19:06:20

Thats a nice extension going on in that build, Im sure it will look great when its finished. The garden will definitely benefit from a makeover, nice size too!

Welcome from me as well and i am looking forward to seeing your project develop.


JoanG JoanG 23 February 2016 21:08:17

Yes, welcome Lisa, and I also look forward to reading and seeing more of your Galway project.  It's a lovely part of Ireland, hope you have a great visit. 

Elizabeth7 Elizabeth7 24 February 2016 10:08:30

Welcome Lisa I love Galway and hope you have a great holiday. If it is to be a holiday home I imagine you would want to keep the garden very simple and as easy to keep as possible. Is it a big garden?

Mary B Mary B 24 February 2016 10:16:23

Welcome also from me Lisa. April/May is a perfect time to visit Ireland, have a great trip!

thanks for the comments. I added some more pictures of the yard now that the house construction is complete. I think the yard is bigger than it looks. If I remember correctly, the length of the yard from the outer edge of patio to the back wall is around 40 feet and the width is about 21 feet, but I may be off on the width. SO I think it will be a big job but so much fun.

Hi Lisa, thank you for sharing the pictures of your house extension and garden. I like the design of your garden shed. I might copy your one as I am planning to have a new one in my garden as the old one was built in the wrong place.

You are right to visit friends and look at other gardens in Galway before deciding on how you want to design and plant yours. You will see what will suit your needs and which plants will be suitable.
