Winter Flowers

It's Snowdrop season!

I arrived at Anglesey Abbey a little early but the doors were already open. The faithful had come to revere the Snowdrop!

Normally Snowdrops mark the move towards Spring after a hard winter but this year its been mild (I do hope we aren't going to be punished).

Anyway Anglesey (which I do like, always something to see).

Ah Snowdrops....

Lunch was a large lump of chocolate cake and a pot of tea! Lovely and on offer at £3 ! Lovely!

Bird highlight ? A calling Great Spots and Long Tailed Tits (that were chasing each other!)

Oh to have a woodland of silverbirches like that. Lovely!

The snowdrops are wonderful. I can't believe all the colour you have there with the other flowers. Great pictures Pete.

The 2 pink hellebores are luscious and the Mahonia is incredibly amazingly huge. The one I saw abloom today in Philadelphia was a shadow of yours and that was the only plant in blossom.
