Today we took Lis's brother and his wife to the Open Weekend at Hare Park in Chippenham, Cambs. There were lots of snowdrops and aconites in flower. The gardens were a picture of late winter, early spring. Luckily we missed the rain that came later.
This is the OTHER Chippenham (near Newmarket) rather than the one in Wiltshire. This Chippenham has a hall with a massively long wall than must have cost thousands when made in the 1700s. It also has delightful cottages (see above) which look like alms houses, or cottages for workers on the local estate.
