Oh dear, I seem to have run out of time to my planned post of seasonal things from my week. I hope you don't mind if I simply share a seasonal delight from today instead.
This afternnon we enjoyed visit to Holme Pierrepont Hall, a historic family home in Nottinghamshire.
I do hope you enjoy the pictures.
We came to see the gardens and walk through the snowdrop woods. I will let the pictures do the talking...but try and label any plants that I am familiar with.
Snowdrops ...good start :0)
Daphne...the scent of this was so strong and beautiful.
Beautiful delicate Blossom tree...I'm not sure what sort though.
Shoots of Wild Tulips emerging
Many of the snowdrops were of an extra large variety that certainly had impact. They were still at their best and I felt happy that we got a sunny day to see then....though it was bitterly cold.
I'd love to come back in a month or so when the Wild Tulips are in bloom.
