Good Fences - Mount Stewart Gardens

This is a wonderful hedge fence I am showing you today as it borders the Spanish Garden at Mount Stewart Gardens near Newtownards, Country Down, Northern Ireland.  These first two shots I took this March 2013.



The Spanish Garden


The photograph above and below were shot in September 2013.




Photographed 26 April 2006



The formal garden that the house overlooks is surrounded by a stone wall fence and dotted around are a wonderful assortment of stone statues.   This is one of them however one day I will do a post on all the statues I found in the garden.


This is the left part of a fantastic gate leading out of this part of the garden and I hope you can see the beautiful gold leaves.



Last Sunday, when I was in the garden again, I closed the gates so that I would see them in all their glory.  The next 3 shots where also taken last Sunday.




This shot above if taken from the summer house at the end of the Spanish garden with the house at the other end.

I close today by showing you part of Mount Stewart’s lake and the fenced walking way enabling you to seem as if you are standing on the lake.  This was photographed on September 2013.

I hope you saw my post last Tuesday were I showed you more of the wonderful gardens, photographed in March 2014.  Also should you wish to see the Gardens, House and Butterflies I photographed last September, go to Labels in the right side column, then click Mount Stewart House and Gardens.
