Yesterday, Sue and I popped down to the Winter Garden at Dunham Massey. The idea was to teach me how to photograph the flowers. My habit of just turning on the Macro setting isn’t very reliable, so we spent some time over a coffee discussing a better technique.
My new found knowledge (now forgotten!) was not put into practice as I didn’t risk using the camera in the rain that greeted us on leaving the café. However, Sue did pull hers out from under her jacket to take these pictures.
I’m not sure of the precise identity of the top two flowers, but the flowers above are obviously one or more of the many varieties of Snowdrop in the garden, and the flower below is Helleborus 'A G H WhiteBlotched'.
We didn’t spend long in the garden. It was wet. Sue then adjourned to the swimming pool to get even wetter, but my walk home along the canal towpath took the biscuit for wetness and resulted in me getting rather muddy, as well as soaking wet due to forgetting to take waterproofs to combat the large soggy snowflakes. Duh!
