White magic at Springhill

Snowdrops at Springhill

The small, white, bell-shaped flowers are always a welcoming sight as winter draws to a close. Snowdrops, also known as Galanthus nivalis, are brave little flowers and the colder the weather, the longer they will last, with some flowering into March. Not only are the snowdrops brave enough to cope with whatever the weather throws at them, they are also the masters of subtlety. Their blue-grey spears have perforated the damp earth and their shoots have expanded, releasing their delicate, dangling green and white bells.

Snowdrop Walks

Come and meet these intrepid little flowers and enjoy an invigorating walk around the grounds and estate. The delightful display of these pretty winter flowers are a real credit to the Estate team who continually spread the bulbs each year.

After all that walking, take the weight off your feet and relax in the Barn Cafe with a warming bowl of soup or a cup of afternoon tea with our homemade carrot cake.
