It reminds me of the gates at all of the royal places we visited in London.
Then there was this fountain:
I guess a garden isn't a garden without some fountains.
Inside the walled section were the most fabulous plants all blooming like crazy. The plants were truly beautiful.
Once again there were some grassy areas with a couple of flowerbeds in the center of them. I love the bright colors of the blooms. And yes, the grass was really that green.

Here are the beds that I really loved; those that appear to be a tad bit haphazard, but really are planned and look fabulous and messy all at the same time:
I have oh so many more photos of this garden, but honestly they don't do is justice. I suppose that you'll just have to take my word for it.
Tomorrow: up close and personal with the Powerscourt Gardens...
