WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - Walk round Mount Stewart Lake (3)

This is the final post regarding Mount Stewart Gardens at present. 
For post (1) CLICK HERE, (2) CLICK HERE.  for you to fully understand today's post. 
I just would like to tell you that at present Lisa, The Interpretive Gardener is working in the Italian garden and she is taking out all the plants and soil in the formal beds and replacing it with fresh soil as well as manuring the plots.  This is done every third year.  
Today, most of photographs I took of the lake speak for themselves so without any more ado, join Lisa and myself as we walk around the lake, soaking in all the beauty it had to offer.  



Matching fountains in the Italian Garden taken before I met Lisa.



Fountain in the Spanish Garden.


These were taken later when Lisa and myself were in the Italian Garden.




The birds I saw on the lake were Black headed and Herring gulls, Mallard, Tufted and Gadwall ducks, Moorhen, Coot, Mute Swan and Little Grebe.

























I hope you enjoyed the walk and views as much as I did.

I am linking this post with WEEKEND REFLECTIONS.
  
I would like to thanks Lisa for a wonderful tour and perhaps we will be able to do it again sometime.  

Thank you for visiting and many thanks for all your kind comments.

  18. Well, it doesn't get any more beautiful than this ... I love fall and the colors vs the bare branches of the few trees that have already shed their glory. The water, the wildlife and the reflections make this an exceptional post, Margaret ... would have loved to have been walking along side you and Lisa ...
