Snowdrops and HP!

After such a busy week-end before my birthday, I was looking forward to a quiet,chilled out day. I wanted to visit Laycock Abbey as they had an exhibition of sculptures in the grounds

For those who don’t know, not only is Laycock a National Trust property but it was also the home of Fox Talbot, the creator of the first photographic negative in 1835. There is a museum to explain and celebrate his achievements and some very strange but interesting pieces of equipment in the grounds.

Although it was still January, the real snowdrops were making a gallant effort to bloom so that they were not over shadowed by the intruding artwork.

The pieces were scattered in the grounds and in the Abbey which was used for the Harry Potter films.

It was a wonderful laid-back visit with some of nature and man’s beauty combined. Of course, we also had cake but then it was my birthday!
