Mount Congreve Gardens ~ Gatherings from Ireland # 171

World famous Mount Congreve Gardens here in Co. Waterford were open to the public yesterday. They were looking absolutely splendid.
Like so many others, I am hoping that a resolution can be found to ensure that the Gardens remain open to visitors, as was the abiding wish of the late Ambrose Congreve.

I hope you enjoy this slideshow of the Mount Congreve’s summer splendor yesterday.

  1. Beautifully put together Jean; even if I never get there I’ll know exactly how splendid it is there. I’m reblogging so that a few flower lovers get to see it.

    1. Yes, I loved the pink poppies too! Fingers crossed the Gardens will be open to the public forever and ever ~ even from April -September ~ as was the case before.
