The sky is blue, sun’s shining and there’s a nip in the air so wrapping up snug head off to National Trust Calke Abbey to see the Snowdrops. I am no Galanthophile (Snowdrop fancier) but what a lovely collection of Snowdrops displayed on the Auricula theatre.
Snowdrops with double and frilly petals, some single with long petals, others single with short petals, all in individual pots each with a variety label. Below are snowdrops plants photos followed by a closer image of that plant.
Fantastic blue sky and sunshine illuminating front of the houseAs you walk between the house and the gardens Snowdrops can also be seen growing naturally springing up amongst the leaves.
Snowdrop season is a few weeks earlier than last year but a sign that Spring really is just around the corner. I for one cannot wait for the next flourish of colour.
What better way to end a lovely day out than with a sunset
