Dillon Garden in August

06 September 2016 10:31:33

Here is a video on The Dillon Garden in August this year. It is my 4th Dillon Garden video so, if you've never been but have been watching, you should be getting familiar with it by now.

This garden is open on Sundays in September (check the website) and then it will finally close. Enjoy!

The Dillon Garden, Ireland - August of closing year, my favourite area - YouTube

PS Did you notice a flash of the Dillon Garden in the intro to the new Gardeners' World series? A feature should be coming soon. The team came to film the same day as the July video I made so Helen was out to lunch with Monty when I was videoing her garden ;-)

Enjoyed that Rachel, thanks.  The Dillon Garden will live on in your videos while Helen embarks on her new garden.

Lovely video Rachel. This series of your videos will be a permanent reminder when this garden finally closes. Helen must be totally exhausted by now with the gardens having een open so much! Yes, I noticed Helens garden behind Monty too!

Thank you, Joan and Hazel. I think videos are important for us, and our chidren, to remember. Mind you, a garden as famous as Helen's has been photographed and videod ad infinitum. The Orchid Garden in Madeira, which recently burnt to the ground, less so. I am glad to have contributed in some small way to reording the beauty that has been.
