Anglesey Abbey in glorious sunshine

We headed off for Anglesey Abbey this afternoon.. the temperature has risen a little although still frost pockets where the sun hadn't reached.. and the sun was glorious and had some warmth.....






Some of the snowdrops beginning to flower - in a few weeks there will be hundreds .. THE very best place for snowdrops...






























Frank, Billie, Shoveler and Parsnip






and after a lovely walk, into the cafe for an very good scone.  Anglesey didn't produce that good a scone in the past, but they are now consistently good... very yummy!!  Thank you to the Baker..
