This and That and a Couple of Days Out......

Last week we watched the weather forecast very closely and chose Thursday as the best day so we headed off to the County Down coast to a National Trust property called Mount Stewart (given that my surname is Stewart I must say I wish there had been a relationship to this family LOL!). It is a beautiful house with magnificent gardens and beautiful walks. We have vowed that we will return in the Springtime when the rhodedendrons are in full bloom. There was a feast of plants and trees to admire - hope I don't bore you with these photos. In the last photo you will see the Mountains of Mourne in the distance, made famous by the Percy French song 'Where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea'.


  1. We haven't been this year - yet! but this makes me want to!!

  2. I love going to places like that! SO many photos you can take. I used to visit lots of beautiful gardens and country houses to take photos for my paintings. (When I used to paint full time, before little Isabelle came along!) You can see some of my paintings here at
