The Gardens of Easton Lodge had their “most successful day ever” at a snowdrop open day on Sunday.
More than 1,600 people attended the event, which saw children enjoy the treehouse while families played croquet and wandered through the snowdrops.
Jill Goldsmith, from the Gardens of Easton Lodge Preservation Trust, said: “It was utterly packed, we are all still recovering. It was fantastic, the most successful day ever.
“Visitors used virtually all of the cakes we had available. People were just enjoying being outside. Children were running around and enjoying the treehouse. It was a really relaxed atmosphere.”
Funds raised from the open days go towards maintaining the gardens and the trust has several projects coming up, including cleaning out the lily pond in the Italian garden.
There will be another snowdrop open day this Sunday at the gardens, from 11.30am-4pm. Refreshments available.
