2nd June 2011

Took this shot at the Bloom in the Park garden show in the phoenix park, Dublin.

A Chinese Garden entitled “Ire-Su”, built by the Suzhou Garden Bureau and presented as a gift from the Chinese people to the people of Ireland was a key feature at Bloom. The authentic Chinese Garden is Bloom’s first international show-garden and  provided the perfect platform for a dazzling display of Chinese cultural activities and entertainment

The dancers at the Ire-Su gardens were evoking nature through their dance.  Some more shots here.   The garden here was reminiscant of those in Suzhou province in China .
