A walk around the Estate October 4, 2020 ~ Ashley A few weeks ago we visited a private house and gardens that we had never been to before, the Montalto Estate near Ballynahinch. Although it was cold the day remained dry. Here are some of the photos that I took.

Thank you for dropping by 😊
Those are outstanding photos, Ash! Looks like it was a beautiful day!
Thanks, Edo! I think we must return there in the spring.
The trees there are beutiful. Nice images, Ashley.
Thanks for your comment. I love trees, just wish these islands had more of them.
Thank you for taking us on this delightful walk with all those beautiful and historic sites, Ashley.
I enjoyed it a lot!
Lovely to hear from you, Stefanie. We all need to get out amongst the trees, even hug a few of them, which I do! 🤗
Thank you for the beautiful photo collage of the elegant estate.
Very nice with a glimpse from one of your garden and tree spotting tours.
Also a great “tree hug” tip in comments.
Hi Marina, yes, I love to hug a tree when I can! 🤗 The gardens were new to us, and it always good to explore new places. The house is private, so no tour there, but the gardens have lots to explore. We’ll try to return there in the spring 🚶♀️🚶♂️
It’s always a pleasure to see your photos of walks in the countryside and different parts of the county. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your kind comments. During these difficult times, we must not turn inward but look outside of ourselves, and in particular to nature. I realise this estate is a very managed environment but gardens also have their benefits for the soul.
Thank you Akriti for your comment.
what a good photographer!! 🙂
Really, I’m no expert. Thanks for your comment
Gorgeous landscapes, Ashley! You photographed the sights beautifully!
Northern Ireland is not very big so I couldn’t believe we never been to these gardens before. Thanks for dropping by, Sandra
I’m glad you found them and shared the sights here with us!
Fantásticas fotografías! Sabes captar, estimado amigo, lo mejor de cada lugar, los detalles y los mejores encuadres. Muchas gracias por tanta Belleza!
Thank you for your lovely comments, Barbara!
Wow gorgeous views! ☀️🍃🌤🍃
I can’t believe we’ve never visited this estate before! Thanks for dropping by, Ashley 😊
Wow, the second tree is magical. I love how it towers over everything, looking like it has lived so many lives. Thank you for sharing your photos and I will ask Markus to tell me something about the Battle of Ballynahinch.
Thanks Micah! It was a lovely visit and we were also able to have our lunch there as well which meant we could have another walk in the afternoon! A whole day there was a treat during this awful pandemic!
I especially like the second photo, the one of the tall tree that looks like a giant bonsai. Beautiful!!
The gardens are certainly ‘well manicured’, everything so tidy. Thanks for dropping in again!
You really are blessed with some lovely places to visit! Have only been to your part of the world twice and that was a long time ago, we keep talking about a revisit…
I’m sure you’d love it here. I’ve always thought that spring is the best time to be here. Take care, stay safe.
Lovely serene shots Ashley.
Thank you, Andrea! That day was so peaceful, something to cherish now that we’re close to putting the clocks back.
