Mountstewart -All things bright and beautiful all creatures great and small

  
Now  if we were to explore everything here we would certainly have to move in and still not see it all in our life time.The colours are particularly beautiful at the moment and the sunken garden stunning.



 
 






I have tried to spend most of my sunshine days here as although not as noisy as last summer the building work behind my house is annoying and puts me off even opening the half door let alone sitting in the garden. There has been high numbers visiting here in last few weeks. I am only aware of the house visits between 100 and 500 people but many more just visiting the gardens and trails and yet it's still so peaceful, like no other place on Earth.


 

Smudge finds it so relaxing also.

 








 A little Jazz to set the scene on a sunny Sunday afternoon.


 
  

 
 I would love to know more about these stone characters and really must spend some time checking each one out individually. This guy on the dodo terrace is particularly smart and strong looking and I see the new plant is pushing up in front of him that Neil Porteous told us about earlier in the year on our garden walk. Garden walks are available regularly and I must say as a visitor and not very educated gardener it was something I had never considered but I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the volunteer garden walk and how much I remembered and took in.
