On Sunday, my husband and I had some unexpected free time and we decided to make the trip. What an absolute joy it was! It was a glorious day, which always improves things. It was full of all the things I love, artichokes, figs, crabapples ,sweetpea,lavender ,hydrangea,wild flower meadows etc. etc.
|A wall of figs, so surprising in our climate.|
|The greenhouses emptied of apricots.|
|Still some late summer colour.|
|Stunning blue delphiniums.|
|Wild flower meadows, and a place to sit.|
|Stunning parkland views from 'The Mount.'|
|Views of the garden, with the sea in the distance.|
We finished off our garden adventure with a delicious tea, taken outside in the sunshine. It was just heavenly.
We learned that it was the last day of opening until Easter, so we were most fortunate that we were able to visit. We will be back!Glenarm Castle. I hope you had a lovely weekend too. Love Linda x
