Bible Garden of Glenstal

 

On a visit to a nearby school for the privileged, I learnt something new.

In the terraced garden, a chance encounter with the gardener provided what was an informative, casual and relaxing tour. I knew nothing of bible gardens but I know a little bit now.

 They don’t grow hemp, probably because it may not have got a mention in the bible; and I forgot to ask! I might get the opportunity again. Overall, if you can ignore the pervasive religiousness all about, Glenstal is a quiet and calming place.

And there’s this, which the gardener also mentioned in passing. He referred to it as ‘the bible’ of all things plants.

    It’s a really nice garden. I visited their bee keeper last year, and I hope to develop the Song of the Bees in collaboration with d’brothers of Glenstal.

      That will be something. Looking forward to hearing that.
