Last week, as I mentioned in my last post, we went to see snowdrops. We went somewhere new: Evenley Wood. It's near Brackley in Northamptonshire.
We have been to snowdrop gardens before where you walk through a smallish carpet of snowdrops but this time there was 60 acres of woodlands to meander through. The snowdrops appeared in drifts every now and again. I was initially disappointed but after about 10 minutes began to enjoy the variety of woodland and snowdrops.
I think we were about a week too early to see the snowdrops in their splendour. And yet there were daffodils almost ready to flower.
There were also tiny cyclamen dotted around. They were about 3 inches tall.
I was trying to get the raindrops on the branches.
The sun came out and shone onto this Witch Hazel
Having decided we will have to go back in May to see the Azaleas and the end of September to see the Autumn leaves we went to have lunch. Roger found this excellent pub by the side of the Oxford Canal.
We had a lovely day.
Thanks for stopping by.
