Spring is just around the corner

Ok so a bit optomistic but you know you are travelling in the right direction when the national collection of snowdrops ar in show at Colsbourne Park

 In spite of the forecast the weather was crisp and sunny, great walking weather.

the lake was smooth as a millpond

Even the on-site parish church was alive with bell ringing.


To continue snowdrop weekend Sunday we went to Newark Park with its wonderful country walks.

An oddity on the old hunting lodge is this dragon, recently found in the cellar and restored in London before being hoisted to the roof as a weather vein. A fellow rambler from Newport advised us that it could not be a Welsh dragon as it has four legs??

 Soon be Daffodile time :)
