Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Mount Stewart House and Garden

This is my attempt this week at Scavenger Hunt Sunday and all the photographs were taken when I visited the National Trust property at Mount Stewart House and Gardens, outside Newtownards, County Down, Northern Ireland. 


1.   What I’m doing today. 
Lunching at Mount Stewart outside at the restaurant when a Great Tit joined me.


2.   Inside
Hallway with Dining room off to right at Mount Stewart.
I will be showing you more photographs and videos of the recent and beautifully renovated inside of this house in later posts.


3.   Candid
Three brothers watching the Goldfish in the pond in the gardens at 
Mount Stewart.


4.   Yum
I resisted these tasty delights but had the gorgeous Carrot & Coriander soup.


5.    Natural Light

Water Lilies from one of the ponds in the formal garden at Mount Stewart.

I am linking with SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for visiting.

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

  1. Beautiful shots. I would have loved the soup but I would have stashed a couple of the cupcakes in my purse for later. The turquoise and pink is stunning!

    1. HI Eileen Many thanks for your kind comments and I was pleased how that image tuned out. I only had 1 shot at it. I am really enjoying this meme. It is challenging and it makes me look for photograph opportunites that I probably would not normally shot. Many for visit.
