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.
