Mount Usher Gardens ~ Co. Wicklow

Mount Usher Gardens | Avoca | Ireland | City of Blackbirds Photography

Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Mount Usher Gardens in Co Wicklow, and spent quite a few hours taking photos there.  I hadn’t expected the gardens to be so lush with flowers and greenery already, but as you can see from these shots it was full of colour and new life.  It was a lovely place to spend a spring afternoon!

I took some shots of the hyacinths growing in the gorgeous little Avoca shop attached to the gardens, and couldn’t resist a photo of the baked alaska my friend Emily tried (and loved) in the restaurant.  (I guzzled down my lemon curd cake without even thinking about taking a photo, but I guarantee you it was delicious!).  Hope you enjoy this post, I’d recommend the gardens to any visitors looking for a day out in Wicklow.  I look forward to revisiting this beautiful place when it’s in full bloom during the summer months.

      I think you’ll really like this one Dee, a friend tells me that in summer it’s hard to move for all the flowers growing everywhere. I’ll definitely be going back for a visit in a couple of months :)
