On a bright, still morning members gathered in the beautiful Mount Usher Gardens and in spite of recent storms the leaves still displayed their autumn glory.
The allegory of death and rebirth was vividly displayed with wilting plants accompanied by the new growth for 2018. Through the gardens, the Vartry River tumbled its way across the weirs and the birds flitted among the branches.
The magic of nature never fails to excite.
