I met up with my parents this past weekend, and we went for a walk around the National Trust estate at Kingston Lacy. The place wasn’t fully open yet, still hunkered down and working through the cold weather, but they were celebrating the carpets of snowdrops that were across some of the gardens. We thought we’d brave the freezing conditions (there were literal snow drops falling at times) to have a look at nature in action.
I’ve loaded these up to Flickr, with a couple of panoramas as well. They seem a bit blurry on closer inspection, I think I’ve forgotten how to take decent photographs. Either that, or it was so cold, I couldn’t be bothered to take my gloves off to get it in focus. Anyway, I can see how this Kingston Lacy place is one that people must go back to time and again, to see the gardens evolve and how they progress and change through the seasons. Lovely.
