Wordless Wednesday – Snowdrops at Chippenham Park

We went for the snowdrop days

And found masses and masses of them, thickly coating the woodland floor

And decorating the gardens

But there were plenty of other beautiful views to see.

Ready for liftoff  … no sports car payload though!

The main canal … but which way is up?

    The Cornus with the silver birch looks stunning.

    I always find these English views stunning. Woodlands filled with any flower are beautiful, and the snowdrops always are especially appealing. I’ve yet to see a snowdrop, after all these years. I’ll have to do a little research, and see where the closest ones might be. They’re probably two states away!

    Beautiful shots! Like Shoreacres, I don’t see snowdrops, but rarely. There are some in gardens here in Austin, but none with that fill a frame.

    Wonderful! I just love snowdrops!

    Wow, Galanthus heaven!

    It’s lovely in winter isn’t it? I’m going next week.

    • Have a great visit! They seem to have lost quite a few trees/shrubs since last year, but that has opened up a lot of new vistas around the estate (to their benefit I think). Nice to see their avenues of baby birch colouring up along the canals too. Enjoy!

    Aren’t there a lot of snowdrops around this year – I’ve seen acres in the wild up in Yorkshire!
