A Winter Snowdrop Tour - Part 3 (Upton House and Gardens)

Our visit to Upton House and Gardens was a serendipitous event. After our visit to Evenley Wood Garden, the following day we set off for a stopover at Stratford-upon-Avon, ostensibly to visit Charlecote Park. Mary was, optimistically as it turned out, hoping to see hares that are known to frequent this estate. With hindsight, it was probably a little early and a little too cold but, fortuitously, we stumbled across Upton House and Gardens.

It was nearly 4 o'clock in the afternoon so there wasn't much time to explore before the gardens closed to the public. Enough time, however, to admire the snowdrops ...

We have made a note to revisit this little gem later in the year.

So I'll sign off with one of Mary's arty-farty photos ...
