Rode Hall visit 2020

For my birthday this year mum, daddy and I went to Rode Hall in Cheshire to see the snowdrops and other flowering plants and shrubs. I’d said that as long as there was no snow I was happy to go. However, it was very cold! The snowdrops and hellebores didn’t disappoint though and I have a few pictures for you.

Snowdrops at last

I thought they had rotted or been eaten but I should have remembered that plants/bulbs in my northern garden are never as far ahead as the south. So I’m very pleased to have found some flowering when I was out just now tidying up again. I keep thinking I’ve finished tidying but I don’t think I ever will. It’s a bit cold for me really (not good for my chest) but I was glad to be outside. I really miss it in winter. So here are the snowdrops I’ve found. A bit small I know but better than nothing and I’m definitely going to get more next year
