Snowdrops in Spring at Burtown House.
It's been a cold and miserable day and I thought that our plan to go to Burtown House in Athy to see the snowdrops was not going to be an option but with a little break in the rain, we decided to head off anyway and I'm so glad we did.
I've been to Burtown House before and had a lovely walk around the gardens and a most delicious lunch - the food is fresh and nutritious and most of the supplies are grown organically in the walled kitchen garden or sourced from local organic suppliers.
The reason for our visit today was a talk on snowdrops by Assumpta Broomfield which sounded really interesting, so interesting in fact that we arrived to a crowd spilling out of the lecture room and it was decided to have a second talk which gave us plenty of time to walk around, admire the plants and have a coffee.
There were masses of snowdrops of all varieties, crocuses, winter aconite and many other dainty spring flowers peeping out from the flower beds and lawns.
