Rode Hall is famous for its Snowdrops, which were near their peak of blooms.

 

 

We walked through the estate's extensive gardens and trails.

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite view.

 

 

Hazel's picture of Elizabeth.  Several nice benches...

 

 

...including this rustic one (complete with ruistic old man)...

 

 

...and this seat with a table.

 

 

This is the old boathouse, mostly underground.

 

 

(Hazel's photo of it; better than mine.)

 

 

The "new" boathouse.

 

 

Several touches of coming spring.

 

 

 

 

 

The pet cemetery.

 

 

See the mouse atop Pussy's stone?

 

 

Path to The Grotto.

 

 

A little light housekeeping.
