Walks And Walking – Where to see Snowdrops and Daffodils this Spring
Snowdrops and Daffodils are normally the first signs of Spring, and the promise of warmer weather, but as the forecast is rain and storms through until the end of March I think we will just have to enjoy them as they are. I saw my first Snowdrops last weekend when we stayed in Rookery Farm Norfolk on a lovely long walk around Sheringham Park.
During the week I read some excellent articles on the Saga website, which is always a good source of interesting content, about Snowdrop gardens to visit across the UK and where to see Snowdrops and Daffodils this Spring. From Scotland to Somerset and Cheshire to Cambridge there should be a wood, forest or National Trust garden for you to visit. You could, of course, plant your own, where it is best you plant your favourite snowdrops during late winter and early spring in pots, troughs, beds, borders or naturalise on lawns.
Snowdrops, Daffodils and other spring flowers also signify the changing of the season, when the bravest of walkers start swapping their waterproof over-trousers with walking shorts to enjoy the longer daylight hours. It also signifies the start of the more popular walking festivals and Spring walks, making it a really good time to review your walking boots, clothes and rucksack essentials for the year ahead.
