My friend Sue and I were craving some fresh air today so we headed north to the snowdrop festival at Howick Hall near Craster, and what a lovely day we had. We dodged all the rain and forced ourselves to eat lunch in the Earl Grey tearoom – pork and leek sausage sandwiches with the most delightful side salad, followed by freshly baked scones. Yum!
The snowdrops were beautiful, as were the aconites and primroses. We even managed a little wander around Howick Parish Church, a fantastically peaceful church in a fantastically peaceful garden. Just what the doctor ordered. Spring is in the air!
