And We're Off

Jurgita (Hoeys) knits a mean sock!
While there have been a few outings so far this year, I think today's one to Altamont was big enough to constitute a proper event (albeit a mini-event).
Today I met up with Fran, Clara, Ladygardener, Gracedieu (Paddy & Mary), HeadGardener, Joybells, Noelle and JoanG in Altamont Gardens. Notwithstanding the odd tardy member (say no more), we were soon off into the gardens, chatting and enjoying the snowdrops.
We lost Paddy almost immediately (he went running round the lake for some reason :O) but, thankfully, someone else stepped in to make up the numbers and we hope we have not scared him too much from joining the site.
It was a crisp, cold, clear day - a perfect day for all us galanthophiles - although some of the snowdrops may have been missed through chatting! Myself and Clare were luckier than most, being well protected from the cold by the super-warm socks that Jurgita kindly knitted us :D
Afterwards it was soup and lunch at The Forge and planning of gardens to visit and places to go in the coming year.
