  2. It was - very much using your estate to convey how much power you have like Blenheim does so effectively.

    We were at Powis Castle last week, which was spectacular too. You would have loved the giant cannas and aeoniums in the terrace borders :)

  4. Wow... now that is a grand entrance and an amazing viewpoint! It reminds me of Disneyland Paris back in 2000 with its entrance to mark the millennium of small hexagonal paving tiles with peoples names on them (at a cost). The hills in the background act like the castle at Disneyland :-)

    1. Hi Shirley - I see what you mean! The hills in the background are the Wicklow mountains which dominate the scenery over several counties in Ireland. The highest one in the photo is the Great Sugar Loaf, which you can see easily from Dublin and from where we were staying in Wicklow.
