Summer in the Mount Congreve garden in Waterford


 






















































In the spring I wrote about Ambrose Congreve and his amazing garden. He died in the interim at the age of 104. The gardeners say he was still very actively involved and in fact he was attending the Chelsea Flower Show in London when he passed away. These photos are from a recent July walk,  he will always be a presence there.


The earlier post from April 21st is called Perfection.
