Mount Usher Gardens cont.......

You may remember seeing a couple of the photos I took when I visited Mount Usher Gardens. It was such a beautiful place, that I couldn't resist showing a few lot more of the, many, photos I took during that visit:
I really love this view and I was very pleased with the shot. I have played around with the lighting on all of these just to get some practise.
There are lots of little bridges over the river.........
and many different trees to admire!
Now, look at this little chap who was helping the gardeners. When we first arrived he was very intent on his task . Anyone like to hazard a guess as to what was keeping him so occupied!
Eventually he did come over and make friends and I expect by now you will have gathered I do love dogs.He was so sweet and he reminded me of my dog 'Titch' that I had when I was about 5 years old!
Beccy and Dillon underneath the arch!
Beccy with her mother-in-law.
Dillon is taking his own artistic photos of the pet cemetery. This is such a lovely little area and clearly from the dates on the stones it is still very much in use.
All the paths wind in and out. There were lots of crocus and daffodils (I'll be posting some more photos of those later in the week~ probably on my other blog).
A couple of other views of the river.
I hope you enjoyed seeing these and if you are ever in that neck of the woods it's worth a visit!!

P.S. Later this morning my mother has to go back to the hospital for the first check up. She is just beginning to move around more freely and her leg is less painful, so hopefully all will be well when they remove the dressing.

That's a nice cyber tour for a guy who has seen nothing but white for almost four months.

The gardens look lovely!

That dog looks a lot like my Lily. Was it digging for worms?

I find the pet cemetery intriguing for some reason. I guess I am creepy like that sometimes.

Love the pics! Gorgeous place. I really like that first one! So, was the dog after a mole or something?

Hope all goes well with your mother!

Beautiful! I bet it is even more gorgeous in the late spring.

I think that dog was probably digging up catpoop. That's what my dogs do in the garden anyway.

Chris, As always your photos are lovely!! I adore Dillon's pet cemetery too (They are such interesting places and I always vist them when I discover there is one in the area Iam visiting.) I've been waiting for pictures of your daffodils this year. They should be blooming soon, right?

Wendy I posted one picture of our daffodils on March 1st(St David's Day)for some reason we did not have as many come up this year!
