Welcome to Handmade Monday 313. Handmade Monday is our link up for handmade ideas, crafts and recipes. Creative bloggers can share their tutorials and projects and we can all be inspired.
This week I visited a place called Hill Close Gardens in Warwick, which is not far from where I live for their Snowdrop Weekend. It was so lovely, with loads of snowdrops popping up everywhere. They have over 130 varieties apparently which I didn’t realise was a thing, I honestly though an snowdrop was a snowdrop! I shared more photos on my Insta if you like looking at this sort of thing. We went there once before in the summer of 2021 when we were looking for outside “just come out of lockdown” friendly things to do. It’s a set of walled Victorian gardens that were owned by shopkeepers from the town of Warwick who lived above their shops and had no outdoor space. The history of the gardens and how they were saved is fascinating, you can read about it here. If you are ever visiting Warwickshire in the middle of England I’d recommend adding it to your list. It’s not big, you’ll only need a hour or 2 to look round then pop into Warwick town centre for tea and a cake!
Enough about me, now let’s take a look at the features now from last week’s Handmade Monday . Click through on the photos to see the original posts.
