Sophie and I have visited Howick Gardens a couple of times prior to this post, in October 2015 and July 2017, but there’s something different happening there all year round, and this time we went to see the snowdrops.
If you want the history of the gardens it’s in the first link there, if not, on with the pretty pictures!
Although it was quite cold, we had a clear blue sky, and the snowdrops were out in force. I had my FujiXT2 + my 16mm fujinon & my helios lens, with me and my Canon EOS 100 FN with a roll of portra 400 in it.
It was lovely to see the snowdrops carpeting everywhere, and to hear the birds singing, and nice to be out in the fresh air.
As we walked around the estate, we got a fab view of the Hall.
There is a church in the grounds
and a chap on his hands and knees amongst the grave stones, macro-ing the snowdrops.
Such a sad grave stone in the cemetery
Just a short one today, nice to remember being out and about and not have to stop breathing when coming across other out and abouters!
