On Sunday a friend and I went to visit the snowdrops at Forde Abbey.
Click on the photos to see them larger.
It is on the border of Dorset and Somerset and just an hour’s drive from where I live. The house is not open until April,
but the gardens are a lovely place to wander in.
and having poured with rain the whole way there, the sun shone for us
and the skies cleared
This Cornelian Cherry (Cornus Mas) was really in the spotlight.
so sunny! but no scent.
with a circle of snowdrops beneath – what a gem!
The star of the show for me, but the hellebores came a close second
There were enough windows on the building to last for the whole year of the Monthly Meet-Up Photo Challenge
So you will be seeing more of this place on Tuesday the 5th March.
