February is snowdrop month at Thrumpton. It’s also Valentine’s Day, when we welcome back couples who have held their weddings at the Hall.
And here’s a secret. it’s in February, during the coldest time of the year, that Thrumpton often looks at its most beautiful, its gardens veiled in white – not by snow – but snowdrops! Everywhere you look, from the pretty old churchyard of All Saints’ – where so many of our beautiful brides have walked down the aisle – to the walks along the side of the lake on which the Hall looks down, these beautiful little flowers cheer us up with a daily remind us that Spring is on the way.
Snowdrops may look fragile, but they are also surprisingly sturdy. Sometimes, in winter months, the lake at Thrumpton spreads out beyond its banks and creeps across the grass in which the drifts of snowdrops nestle. Two weeks later, the water recedes and there the snowdrops glitter, graceful as ever: standing to attention like tiny armies under the budding branches of the trees.
