My WI had organised to meet at Brodsworth Hall to do a Snowdrop walk this morning, but the weather was so bad, that I decided to postpone my arrival until later in the day as I didn't want to get soaked.
By the time I arrived, the skies were blue and the weather was great for wandering around the gardens.
The hall is closed until Easter time, but you can look around the servants quarters, shop and the tea rooms are open too.
The topiary in the gardens ensure that there is enough interest at this time of year when flowers are few and far between.
It looks as if the snowdrops are all recent plantings - they are fairly longed stems ones.
I took my mum along with me and was surprised when she said that she hadn't been before. I promised to take her back when the house is open.
The grounds close at 4pm at the moment, so it was a bit of a dash round. It will be no hardship to go back another time though - and its only about 15 minutes from home.
