Back to Dawyck

Finally after days of rain, snow, flooding, storms and gales today presented the first gloriously sunny day for weeks and I grabbed the opportunity to go to Dawyck Botanical Gardens. It opened on the 1st February after their winter closure but due to the storms the garden still had a few closed days last week as it was dangerous. Fortunately all is now well and although it was wet under foot at times, with a sturdy pair of boots I ventured everywhere to take a look at what was above ground already.
 But what I enjoyed most was the light, the way it filtered through the trees and fell on the still frozen ground.
 The way the berries looked extra red against the blue sky.
And of course the way it showed off the masses of snowdrops to their best effect. The flowers are not quite out yet but will be soon. Reason enough to return to the Gardens again soon! Not that I need one! I love visiting.
