The Christmas and New Year festivities are a distant memory and the forthcoming summer feels like an age away during these short, frosty February days.  Gloomy days which most of us would rather avoid by staying under the duvet or assuming the pose of a couch potato.   But while we are still in hibernation mode the world outside is stirring; waking up to the fact that spring is definitely on its way.

The first strains of the dawn chorus can be heard as day breaks on the horizon, leaf buds are starting show on the trees and carpets of snowdrops quietly announce new life in the garden.  At Deene Park swathes of these delicate flowers, of all varieties have shaken off the winter blues and are saying ‘hello world.’  The spectacular display includes ‘Pusey Green Tip’ distinctive by its bold green markings on the outer petals and ‘Blewbury Tart’ which resembles a Victorian ball-gown; two among a cast of thousands and both in abundance in the grounds and gardens of Deene Park. 

They are not alone!  Keeping them company are a variety of other early flowering plants and shrubs such as hellebores and crocus, scented viburnums and winter honeysuckles.  Why not shake off your winter blues; step into our garden this February and enjoy these shy, delicate beauties for yourself. 

The gardens and tea room are open on Sunday 17th and Sunday 24th February, 12noon until 4pm.   Enjoy hot drinks, cakes and light refreshments, as well as snowdrops on sale.  Admission: adults £5, children under 16 free of charge.
