Colours of Spring on a grey day

Despite the grey, a beautiful day was spent at Chippenham Park gardens, admiring the Snowdrops and Hellebores and warming ourselves by the giant fire.
Beautiful selection of Hellebores

Amazing colours of Dogwood and Catkins

and beautifully scented Witch hazel

We became slightly snap happy on our day trip, so pop over to my husbands blog to get his take on the day.

Dear Katherine, What beautiful pictures you show here of your visit to Chippenham Park. Hellebores are my favourite early spring perennial, whatever their colour or form. And, the drifts of Snowdrops are indeed marvellous. i do love to see them as at Chippenham Park in light woodland and growing freely just like a carpet of snow.

I am so pleased to have found your weblog and have signed up as a Follower, as well as making it a Favourite on Blotanical in order to keep in touch.
