Snowdrops Indicating The Arrival Of The Spring
Snowdrops are tiny white flowers that are delicate and hard indicating the arrival of spring. There is a distinct woodland garden on the fellside. It has winding paths, and there are various snowdrop varieties. The gardens were created more than 20 years ago by Edwina Miller. Common snowdrops are found under the trees in their naturalized form, and there are rarer snowdrop plantings, interspersed with rare daffodils and pink hellebore.
While exploring the gardens, you can see ivory colored snowdrops featuring yellow stems. There are farms developed for wildlife, and you can enjoy watching lamb being hand-fed around these regions. Lancashire has fertile lands, and with abundant water sources, the growing conditions are excellent, with each season bringing new tastes.
