Imbolc Spring Garden

Imbolc (pronounced Im-ulk) is the old Celtic name for the spring festival on February 1st, now St. Brigit’s Day. The birth of lambs and the first snowdrops herald this season of new life as the land re-awakens and growth begins again.

In the Imbolc garden the path leads through wildflower meadow and orchard trees to a children’s glade with its delightful basketwork swings. In the sunken garden, a carved triple spiral outlines the stories and symbol of Brigit, Celtic Christian Saint and pre-Christian goddess of the land.

The Gardens

A walk through the four Gardens takes you on a journey through the Celtic cycle of the seasons, each garden representing one of the Celtic festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasa. This seasonal cycle mirrors the cycle of life from conception to old age and death. The design weaves Celtic stories with contemporary design to create spaces that are beautiful and tranquil yet inspiring and full of life.
