We couldn’t believe our luck as the clouds disappeared, the wind dropped and the sun came out - what a beautiful day. This club event was about photographing snowdrops but there was so much more to enjoy at Chippenham Park gardens - winter aconites, crocus, amazing displays of hellebores and many fragrant winter flowering shrubs. Thank you Christine for recommending this destination as a club event - I think some of us will definitely be returning to enjoy the gardens later in the year.
After all going off in various directions to find that special shot we met up at the cafe to enjoy a hot drink and sample some of their splendid hot food and cakes.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their day and thought the gardens and all the facilities were outstanding.
