Be my Valentine

A simple woven heart with snowdrop kokedama makes a cute Valentine

I spotted this cute vignette at the snowdrop press preview at Easton Walled Gardens last week and decided it was perfect for a secret Valentine today.  Easton's snowdrops are on fine form throughout the garden and you have until Sunday (19th February 2017) to see them with or without your beloved.

It's worthwhile combining your visit with Hodsock Priory like I did. Their massed snowdrops are available to view until 5th March and there's lots of other winter garden inspiration to be found there. Look out for plentiful ideas to add flowers, colour and scent to your plot at this tricky time of the year.

Allow around 50 minutes for travel between the gardens, which makes for a nicely full, yet relaxed day out. Both gardens have plenty of options for yummy treats and hot drinks to fuel your day.
