Blueberry fields

 Lot of marsh Marigolds near Mount Stewart.
 This blueberry field is a couple of km west of Morell. Lots of green on the trees on the far side of the field.

This item is on the lawn at the information center in Mount Stewart. I am guessing that it is a water wheel from a old mill.  A sunny day with a high temperature of 22 with a west wind of 20-25 km/h.
After cycling I mowed the lawn.

 This bed of tulips is along the North River road at Ellen creek.

 I spend the afternoon at the Bonshaw park helping get the trail ready for the Royal visit.
