Powerscourt Gardens

Last Sunday, Jacqueline and I decided to visit Powerscourt Garens in Co. Wicklow.
It's somewhere I had wanted to go for a long time and I figured Fall would be a good time to visit.

Thankfully we left quite early and were not in a hurry because the 1 hour drive it should have taken from my house to Powerscourt, doubled, as we got lost in Co. Wicklow. While driving around, we discovered some of the most beautiful places.. absolutely gorgeous houses spotted around the mountains, beautiful neighborhoods, little country villages. It made me realize how much I would love to own a house outside of the city, surrounded by nature.

Thankfully it was just us girls so we were not afraid to stop and ask for directions (unlike the other species) so shortly after that, we were headed once again in the right direction. I suppose it was just unfortunate we didn't realise we were lost until we were over 30 minutes away from our desired destination!

It was worth the detour though...

At Powerscourt Gardens, apart from the obvious...gardens, there is an Avoca shop, which I love as well as an awesome garden centre. They had the cutest things, if only I took some pictures. I always feel shy taking my camera out in a shop to take photos. Probably because I've been told to put it away on so many occasions.

As of this morning, winter has officially arrived.... I'm off to turn on my heater, pull out the warm pjs and hop into bed.

Have a great weekend everyone!
