Two weeks ago, we went to Powerscourt Gardens for the day. It’s only thirty minutes from our house. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to believe that we live near so many beautiful spots.


Powerscourt Gardens is an old estate owned by a wealthy family who has opened it to the public. Can you even imagine taking your tea every day on this terrace?

There is an Avoca cafe and shop inside the castle. We ate lunch here and felt spoiled. Look at that view.

That’s Sugarloaf Mountain.

This is our Sugarlump. Ha.






He napped for most of the afternoon. She had a blast exploring.


The gardens are extensive and gorgeous.


Sigh. What happy memories of a beautiful place.
