The Gibberd Garden

Popped into the Gibberd Garden this afternoon and boy was it cold!!

 Reflections of a photographer







and home for a well needed cup of tea.

the garden I might add is worth a visit if you are in the area. Preferably when a little warmer.

Ickworth & Hildersham Church

I had promised Trish snowdrops..... now normally I'd go to Anglesey Abbey but for a change we headed to Ickworth (get used to it there will be a few visits throughout the year!).

Would you believe it snowed? ok not much but ye gods! And it was cold!







We headed around the Italianate gardens towards what I call the "mistletoe trees" Trish said is that starlings in that tree? Well  I had heard a Mistle Thrush  but when I stuck my bins on the tree.....WAXWINGS approx 20!  Wow didn't expect that!








Time for a cuppa.......




No idea why the chairs are there.....




















Instead of going back to the "posh" restaurant we had a soup from the Porter's Lodge (Carrot & Ginger spicy ! just what was needed).

So with the snow falling we headed back with a detour to Holy Trinity, Hildersham



We saw three Buzzards
