I want to make a sign for our home, a historic old farm home in the Wisconsin countryside. We have small stream, with walk bridge, and the property and stream are lined with old willow trees. Also, we are surrounded by wild flowers, and an incredible variety of birds. It almost looks like Monet's "Garden" painting. It is a great place for friends to gather to have a good time (often accompanied by camp fires and lots of beer and wine).

I'm seeking an Irish name (and would like to know the English translation of it) that captures the essence, or spirit, of the place. Thanks in advance for your help and ideas!

Wouldn't that be "Éirí na Gréine", Kathleen? "Ard" means "height". "Éirí" means "rise".
