A slightly depleted (due to illness) but cheerful Outings Group visited the lovely Myddelton House Gardens today for snowdrop viewing and weren’t disappointed. Planting has extended way beyond what it was years ago, including the Alpine Meadow, and other paths and terraces are a pleasure to walk along, one leading to the striking Market Cross, which the horticulturalist E A Bowles (related to the perhaps more famous Parker Bowles family) rescued from being made into rubble in 1904. Besides snowdrops, crocuses, hellebores and early daffodils abound. This place is a gem which is delightful and worthwhile to visit at any time of year.
