One might think it funny (maybe ?) that I note Trinity College’s Zoology Museum here, but there is literally so much that this horticulturist takes every time I visit. Regularly done but never noted ’til now. NB: not The Dead Zoo, alias The Natural History Museum.
Before I get there, if you are looking for a slight Dublin City escape, you could do a lot worse than to side exit stage left with your luncheon through the main gates of Trinity and down towards ‘The Pav’. We on this occasion, took the route off College Green through Trinity’s main arched entrance.
Walking through that way – a place I used to go between 2 bus journeys over to see my Grandmother on the Southside of Dublin and later again when I was between 3 much longer bus journeys heading to horticultural college – I get to see the lines and symmetry of the buildings windows; and its in part softened dappling by the now aged trees – that in my eyes, never have they seemed to age. Something that has always amazes and never ceased to make me smile.
