Snowdrops at Easton Lodge

It was an open day at the Lost Gardens of Easton Lodge today.

For those who don't know was originally a Tudor Hunting Lodge destroyed by fire in 1847. It was rebuilt in 1861 in the Gothic style. The famed socialite Daisy Countess of Warwick (and mistress of Edward VII) was born there... The house was largely demolished in 1950.

The gardens were designed by Harold Peto for Daisy and were overgrown when a restoration started in 1971. The progress has been very slow but in the last few years you can see some real progress.

not sure what these are about ..... they were left there bit sad really.

Beautiful garden and photos. Especially lovely to see the aconites. Feel so sorry for those poor cuddly toys!
