Well who would have thought that such a beautiful place existed on our own doorsteps!

Last week Margie asked me if I would like to go to Airfield Estate. Now to be honest I had absolutely no idea where she was talking about and of course I thought it was somewhere further afield. But in fact it is across from the Dundrum Shopping Centre!

It was last Wednesday and a bitterly cold day. I got there a bit earlier and walked around the grounds. Im sure when the weather improves and there is more growth it will be just a great place to visit. It has beautiful laid out gardens, a farm, little cafes and a restaurant, a beautiful house which at present is being restored and lots and lots of different walks. Im hoping to bring the grandchildren here someday when its much warmer!

We went inside for a cuppa to heat up as it was so cold and then of course the usual retail therapy in Howbert & Mays garden shop just to the side of the entrance. We had a little look around as the wind would just cut you in two it was that cold! Seriously!!

I bought a few little Primula and Margie picked a few plants too. It was a really enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. 

Unfortunately I cant put up an album to show you how beautiful it is, I did put some up on FB if anyone wanted to have a look there. But here is a photo of the house and one of the many areas....plus my little purchases ;)
