Twelve things you might miss while wandering around Powerscourt Gardens
I made some use of the bit of weekend sunshine that we had to grab some of the more unusual views at Powerscourt.
Obviously the great terraces are immediately identifiable as belonging to Powerscourt, but here are some other pictures that each have a story behind them. It was hard to limit to twelve! Another visit would give another twelve pictures but I hope that you find them interesting.
1. The Laocoön
2. The Chorus Gate
3. Julia’s Garden
4. The English Gate
5. Princess Grace’s Tree
6. Roman Ruins
7. Coat of Arms
9. Alexander Robertson
10. Juggy’s Pond
11. The Lord Viscount’s Walk
12. Servant’s Hall
