Blarney Castle Poison Garden — Please Don’t Eat the “Daisies”

A short stroll from Blarney Castle, located behind the battlements, is a rather recent edition to the ground. This is the Blarney Castle Poison Garden, which we’ll view today on the blog.

WARNING: Keep Off The “Grass,” “Weed,” or whatever else you want to call it

But enough of the the plants. Let’s take another look at some of the castle’s details. Remember the Blarney Stone we talked about last Wednesday? It’s 85 feet/26 meters above the ground, and directly above this yarn-adorned “window”:
