After exploring Blarney Castle and kissing the Blarney stone, we set off into the immense gardens -- far too much to explore in just a few hours. Remember that poison garden I was obsessed with? Well, I drug Lauren around until we found it -- which was far more difficult than it should have been. You see, the problem was I thought I was following the signs, but I really wasn't. At any rate, the scenic route provided just that -- lots of gorgeous scenery.
It turns out that the Poison Garden's role is to help teach children the different types of poisonous plants -- not to kill anyone.
This pretty, little bird held still long enough for me to snap his picture. Wasn't that nice of him?
