Mount Usher

In case you start to wonder, the verdant-ness below was actually photographed in July, but I kept forgetting to post the pictures.

I visited Mount Usher with my mama; it's a stunning garden in Co. Wicklow, less than an hour from the centre of Dublin.  For a small fee (worth it) you can walk around a rare slice of loveliness, and the weather doesn't really matter: we were there on an overcast day and it was still beautiful.

There are interesting grouping of plants, flowers and trees.

There is also a river running through the heart of the garden and many bridges.

I keep thinking Penelope Bridge sounds like the plucky heroine of an adventure book.

No, she didn't jump - honest.
