13th February 2011.
It was grey and windy this afternoon, but the rain held off long enough for us to spend an hour walking around Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum, admiring the snowdrops, and wonderful white, red and yellow bark on some of their trees and bushes, some of which were beautifully fragrant. There are a couple more weeks left for you to get out and get some fresh air, and find somewhere near you with snowdrops on show.
Here are some pictures from our trip today :
