Urban landscapes: the colour of an Irish spring

SPRING TULIP, ST. STEPHEN’S GREEN, DUBLIN

While our cruise ship was docked for an overnight stay, I had a glorious hour or two to explore this wonderful urban park. Spring was in full bloom and compelling little scenes like this were everywhere. St. Stephen’s Green was one of the key sites of the 1916 Easter rebellion. The rebellion failed, but it was the start of a journey that led to independence for most of Ireland.
