Snowdrops in Wells

The day before Storm Ciara descended upon us with her worst, I visited the Bishop’s Palace Gardens in Wells. The sunshine was out for the opening day of the February Snowdrop Weekends. A map available at the entrance highlighted all the Snowdrop locations. The best display was undoubtedly inside the gardens in the Arboretum. A selection of my photos follows:

There are also Snowdrops beside the moat, both inside and outside the gardens.

Snowdrops also lined the path between coppiced trees.
