Snowdrops and Mill House


The snowdrops were popping up last week when we visited Hillsborough Fort grounds.

Below you can just see the spire of the Parish church in the background.


Our walk also took us passed a converted stone mill - the stream flows right below the fence.


This is how the mill house looks from the other side, painted cream. ( I prefer the natural stone!)


Thanks for coming by!

  1. We seem to be having a particularly good year for snowdrops. They've been blooming here for a month and show no signs of fading away just yet. The old mill is a fine old building and I agree with you about the natural stone looking better than the creamy side.

  3. I think I prefer the natural stone also. Those snowdrops are beautiful and I'm really enjoying these photos because it's one flower we never see here in the desert.

  5. ...snowdrops are tiny treasures of nature, a sure sign of spring. It's sad that the beautiful stonework was painted, I wonder what their thinking was. Thanks Christine for sharing, enjoy your week and please stop back again.

  7. The mill looks better with that natural stone for sure.
    The snowdrops are so pretty, I have a couple pieces of old Royal Albert china and the pattern is snowdrop and I just love them.

  11. Pretty snowdrops, they are always nice to see. I agree with you, the natural look is a lot better than the painted side. I wonder why they decided to paint one side.

  14. Wonderful sights! I don't think I have ever seen snowdrops. They are beautiful, with their little heads drooping. They are some kind of bulb? I like the original stonework on the mill, too. It is more authentic. With an old mill, you don't really want to modernize it, part of it's attraction is that is still looks like it always has.
