In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.”

Wordless Wednesday – Snowdrops at Chippenham Park

The Cornus with the silver birch looks stunning.
It’s a combination that never gets old!
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!
Good luck tracking down something closer! I agree about a flower carpeted woodland floors and I must admit to bluebells being my absolute favourite.
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.
There is definitely something divine about views of swathes and swathes of pristine white nodding heads.
Wonderful! I just love snowdrops!
I love to see them en masse and I am gradually coming round to individual merits too!
Wow, Galanthus heaven!
Yes, one of the best snowdrop gardens around here.
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!
Yes, you are right. The conditions must have really suited them over this last year.
