I had heard that the snowdrops at Burton Agnes Hall were spectacular. Yesterday the sun was shining, so off we went for the first outing of the year to see for ourselves.
The Hall is a rather grand Elizabethan House, closed still for Winter cleaning.I love those chimneys!
The view from the woods caught my eye too.
Nearer the house are the formal gardens and a wonderful walled garden. Here’s the view from the rather magnificent Gate House.
I have a thing about garden lions.
I need one! There is also a children’s section with outside games and around them I spotted my second flower picture.
I thought that one so gorgeous I bought one for our garden. And I have some other rather nice photos which will appear throughout the year in the 52 week photo challenge! I was rather tempted to use the last picture of the house next week under the prompt Home!! Imagine. … No thanks, think of the dusting!
