It has been cold here!! Even tho February is the shortest month of the year it sure feels like the longest month. In order to improve our mood and get out of the hum drums of the month we headed to a local garden to look for signs of spring. Anglesey Abbey is a national trust site and has beautiful garden open year round. Always a favorite spot of ours to explore nature.
I attempted to get the kids to record what they saw.
Not sure the name of this one but it is pretty
We found Daffodils blooming
I can't remember the name of this flower
or this one, I really need to get better at identifying my plants:(
I loved the silver birch tree path. The gardens will power wash the tree trucks in order to maintain the starkness of the tree trucks. It was just beautiful.
Another path that I really like
The garden has an 265 year old water mill on the premises. It still produces flour the old fashion way.
Here Little Man is grinding the wheat by hand
Then the gentlemen were nice enough to turn the mill on so we could see how the machinary works. Some of these parts are over 100 years old. They can produce 1 Kg of flour in less than a minute. (I think I remember that fact correctly)
We had a lovely time exploring the garden and it gives us hope that spring is coming very soon.
