Snowdrops at Hodsock Priory

These photos are from a couple of weeks ago… Finally got out between writing numerous essays to enjoy the Snowdrops.

Pheasant rifling through the leaves.

A promising sight as you arrive, lots of Daffodils
Some strange, large animal statues were dotted around…
Very old planter?
Yay, Snowdrops!
Hellebore and Snowdrops
Wonderful twisted Hazel Catkins
More Snowdrops, do I really need to introduce them??
Wider view, not a carpet but still I’d love to have nice patches like this in my own garden
Lots of Cyclamen Coum, I really want some in my garden!
A giant Frog? Perhaps I ought to find out the story behind them…
I’m enjoying this combination of colour!
There were a few Beehives, again I’ve no idea of the story behind them… Sorry… It was drizzly and the place was a quagmire… I didn’t hang around
Winter Honeysuckle, must get some in my garden
Lots of Daffodils coming up
The Winter Aconites were really impressive in this area, I’ve never been tempted by them before but would certainly like to have a carpet like this!
I loved these Daffodils/Narcissi…
Lovely Dogwoods across the lake
The Priory…

And now we move into the woodland walk, which was terrible to try to walk around, but I’ll try not to bore you with my ranting…

This is where the Snowdrop carpets can be found, and they apparently also have Bluebells later in the year which I will definitely want to see!

Note for future: Take walking boots.
