Second Snowdrop Day at TWIGS

TWIGS planted 10000 snowdrops last year, intending to have wonderful displays of them this year, their major event was last Sunday, 12 February. I didn't visit then, but was keen to go today when I discovered they were opening again.
The snowdrop theatre by the gate was lovely, displaying several different varieties of snowdrops looking very healthy:
 I particularly liked This one which is G. S Arnott
 and this one which is G. Comet
 There were snowdrops all around the round house
 in hanging baskets
 around a mound
 And here's the other side of the mound with a giant metal snowdrop on top
 and here's another amazing snowdrop sculpture rather in shadow
 They are also open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10.30am-3.30pm, well worth a visit at any time of year.
We are donating the proceeds from our Original Artwork Lottery held during the Swindon  Festival of Literature  to TWIGS this year.
