The weather has thrown everything at us in 2013 snow, gales, floods, sun, fog but it seems that snowdrops remain unfazed by it all.
Whatever happens weatherwise they just stick their heads proudly above the ground and tell us that there is hope around the corner and spring is coming.
Now at Painswick Rococo Garden the carpet of snowdrops is coming into its best as predicted at the start of February. Paul Moir, Garden Director, was concerned at the start of the year as many of the early blooms came out very quickly. "We thought that we were in for an early showing for our annual display with very mild weather in the New Year, you could almost see the progress in front of your eyes. But the snow soon paid to that and things got back on track."
Thousands of visitors come every year on an annual pilgrimage to see the spectacle, bringing a welcome boost to the local economy. The Garden is open 7 days a week from 11am-5pm and the snowdrop display will continue well into the month, just in time for half term.
