It was the annual snow drop walk this afternoon so we wrapped up warmly and headed to Greatham to the hospital grounds
we followed the yellow brick road winding round the trees
where we saw thousands and thousands of snowdrops,
swaying their pretty little heads in the breeze, what an amazing sight.
In among the snowdrops was ivy that climbed up the trees,
we went into St John the Baptist church where the foundations were laid in 1792, and it had such lovely stained glass windows. Scattered around the walls the church warden had put some of his paintings up in a little exhibition.
As we were leaving we passed the almshouses in the grounds, what a lovely place to live.
The sheep were happily munching away in the next field as we made our way to the hall where the ladies had made sausage rolls, little coffee cup cakes and a much needed, to warm us up, cup of tea!!
It was well worth £2 and all the money raised goes to charity.
