This afternoon we visited Dunham Massey near Altrincham to see the snowdrops. The solitary snowdrop we have in our back garden just wasn't cutting the mustard, so we went to the largest winter garden in Britain to enjoy them instead. There were thousands of snowdrops in flower, along with some irises, cyclamen, aconites and few early daffodils. We were a tad early as the cold winter has meant that the snowdrops are a little later than usual. I think in a week or two we would have enjoyed an even more impressive display. It was still very pretty though and well worth the trip to see some flowers after a long winter devoid of them.
