Friday was a glorious warm spring like day.  A day to spend looking at carpets of white snowdrops.
We jumped in the car and headed to the Cotswolds, to the National Trust house – Newark Park, close to Stroud.
The sun was wonderfully warm, we wandered through the gardens peeling off layers of coats and scarves, noticing the small differences between clumps of white belled blooms.  The boys ran through the trees, discovering the ruined folly (jail as they called it), before stumbling across a shimmery blue Peacock basking in the sunshine.  Spellbound they stood for ages marvelling at it’s deep blue colour, before the bird became bored and flew up to the high wall, away from curious boys.
Now is the time see snowdrops in their full glory.  For more information have a look here for properties close to you.

  • Wonderful pictures! I have always adored british gardens..haven’t visited many, but if they are nearly as nice as all the pictures I have seen, I can’t wait ’til I get the opportunity to see one for real again!

  • your posts make me want more beauty in my life and makes me wonder why your UK looks so different to mine! i am going to ponder this now!

  • Gorgeous. There’s nothing like Newark Park on a sunny day! When we went to see the snowdrops there last, they were peeping through the snow. x

  • Lou!! That is 3 minutes from my house! :) We love it there too, did you see the pecock door knocker on the door? xx

  • That looks lovely. Have been meaning to go there for a while. Might do it this week if we get a good day x

  • What a beautiful place. I’ve actually never been to the Cotswolds and it’s been top of my list in England for a while, I’ll definitely be visiting this home when we get there. Let’s hope it’s sunny like this!

  • We’re definitely having the same half-term…we visited a snowdrop park yesterday too! Not quite as nice as our forest day but still…sunshine!

  • Gorgeous! It is almost as if I am there with you all. Feeling the cool musty air full of hints of spring.. xxoo

  • That looks so lovely Lou. We have next to nothing on the NT trust front down this way – it’s all Roman ruins and Dover castle.

    Love the snowdrops – Sping is definitely on the way! Though we’re shrouded in sea mist today…it’s trying really hard to warm up though.

    Have a lovely day,

  • Beautiful photos. I love going to National Trust properties and Newark Park is pretty special! x
