Mount Stewart Garden Flowers in November (1)

It has been some time since visited the National Trust garden at Mount Stewart near Newtownards and I was very annoyed because when I was away in Africa, I missed the wonderful autumn colours.  So on Sunday, as the weather was good, I paid the gardens a visit and I was not disappointed.  Over the next 3 days I will share the photographs I took.  Because I assumed (quite wrongly!) there would be no autumn colour around the lake, I thought I would photograph any flowers I came across in the other gardens.  I have experimented with both shots and framing and I hope you will like at least one of them.  So sit back, put it into slide mode and enjoy.


























I hope you enjoyed these beautiful flowers still blooming at the end of November.  I wonder can you pick a favourite?  

Now tomorrow, I will take you with me round the gardens and and we will see many different shapes and types of fences in this beautiful garden.

Thanks for visiting.

Many thanks for your kind comments.

  1. A colourful report. Personally I would have chosen between the pictures which look almost the same. It decreases the number of pictures without loosing anything. Nr 8 I like the best.

    1. HI EC The shots are edited the same however the frames are very different making it a different shot. I prefer the last one. It is the first time I have used this framing.

  16. Hi Friend, Just stopping by to say Happy Thanksgiving to you. Even in places where Thanksgiving is not celebrated (or celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November like ours is) —it can be a time for each of us to take time to thank God for our blessings and also not to forget the “Giving” in the word, ThanksGIVING. We all have lots of blessings —but many times, we ignore the giving part….Not just on Thanksgiving Day, but all of the time, please take time to contact family/friends just to say HI… And remember that a big SMILE can lift someone’s day…. Little things like that can really HELP..

    Beautiful flowers.... Love all of the colors. Gorgeous.

    God Bless…
    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  22. How can I pick only one as a favourite? Still... I love the biloba leaves (the way you captured in the air) and the white flower! It looks like an oleander bloom, but not so sure. And the flowers that looks like the japanese roses... Incredible journey with lots of magical aspects! Nature is amazing!
