Well happy 2018 and though it’s so tempting to stay inside when it’s cold wet and windy, I am making myself be more aware of the change in seasons. Spring is already on it’s way with the emergence of snowdrops and yellow winter aconites. I visited two beautiful places very recently and wanted to document them.
First of all a trip to Waterperry Gardens on a snowy Sunday. The snowdrops were just emerging and the light dusting of snow on the topiary gave another dimension, even though my fingers were freezing it was worth it.
Second of all a trip to St Boltophs church at Swyncombe which is renowned for it’s carpet of snowdrops. They were still very much in their early stages but looked beautiful in the morning dew.
