Emo Court, begun in 1790, is one of the finest large-scale country houses which is open to the public in Ireland. The main drive is an avenue lined with magisterial Wellingtonia trees.
In the Victorian era, many of these enormous trees, also known as California Redwoods, were brought to Britain.
Corn Poppies grow in the fields:
There is a large forest of Beech and English Oak.
The woods is full of Enchanter’s Nightshade; a plant which is also common in southern Ontario.
I was able to get photos of two bird species: Woodpigeon and Swallow.
