Castle Mona

Date made: 1822

Description: Castle Mona gardens: "a perfect level, with gravel walks at the sides, woods rising from it up the steeps, and the dashing sea, boats, and ships, and ladies struggling with the wind, veils and gay shawls and waving flounces. The gardens beautifully managed, - wild, yet neat enough for plentiful produce. Shrubbery, forest trees, vegetables, flowers, and hot-houses, all connected, yet divided by the form of the ground. Nature and art hand in hand, all shrubs, and Spanish chestnut in great luxuriance. Ate strawberries in the shade.” (Dorothy Wordsworth, Journal of a Tour in the Isle of Man, 1828, M 10561)
