First snowdrops

By pentaxpatty
Good afternoon

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and votes and those very special user awards from , Cathy for a Stan, Bernie and Billy (williamslone) very kind of you.

I have been out today to Hopton Hall to see the snowdrops, it was lovely in the sunshine and it is the best time to go the first week, before they get trampled upon or they soon go over.
Some winter aconites too in the sunshine.
Hopton Hall is open from February 1st until Sunday March 4th. It is worth a visit.
I hope that you are having a good day too.

Love and light Patty xxSmileSmile
