This past weekend, Shane and I decided to take a little trip over to Cambridge to visit the beautiful winter gardens at Anglesey Abbey. The house isn’t open this time of the year, but there’s still plenty to see in the gardens and working flour mill. We were pretty shocked by just how busy it was there for a winters day, but it was a great little afternoon out, taking in all the pretty flowers starting to bloom.
There were hundreds of snowdrops carpeting the ground beneath the trees (they’ve currently got a snowdrop festival on with over 250 varieties in the gardens blooming till around March 1st), along with the hellebores and crocus’ starting to bloom and the silver birch trees were glowing so bright in the winter sunshine. We even spotted a couple super early daffodills, hidden in a border. I literally squeeled with excitement when I saw the pretty blossom on the trees too! To me, blossom is like the first signs of spring, so I loved seeing the trees starting to bloom. Yay for warmer weather!
