Dunmore House

The Dunmore House was my favorite “Secret Garden” in the world. Our innkeeper sent us “across the street” to the most spectacular walled gardens. We walked through them in awe. All the plants were by deep green leaves and shrubbery. The colors of everything just seemed so exaggerated it was unlike anything we’ve ever seen. The gardener told us he wasn’t sure of the name of a plant, as he had only been “working these gardens for 60 years”. His uncle before him had worked the gardens previously. The distant manor house must have been spectacular, but this place was unforgettable.
