The Snowdrops are Out
Snowdrops in Evenley Wood Gardens on the opening day of 2017
There we were, sitting enjoying Saturday brunch. Remarkably, given the recent gloomy, cold overcast weather, the sun came out. We decided a walk in the woods was good idea. I have to say that the African in me balked a bit at going outside in cold with no rugby to watch!
Evenley Wood Garden
is one of those
places. Pretty, a nice spot to be in, but it's less than 3 miles away, so you never go there. A quick check on the Internet showed that Saturday was Evenley's opening day for 2017. And the snowdrops were out.
After the wet weather the gardens are a bit muddy and slippery. As it is early in the season there are not many flowers to see, but it is still a lovely spot to take an afternoon walk. A few people seemed to agree, as we were not the only ones there.
An excellent cup of coffee and some cake topped off the afternoon in the little tea room.
Evenley Wood Gardens is definitely a spot we will be visiting again. Especially as the flowers bloom. And we saw the snowdrops!
