Snow adventures

We recently had a LOT of snow around these parts, which, like many of our friends, we took as the perfect opportunity to go frolicking. Erddig House is a National Trust property in Wrexham, which features an 18th Century country house and a beautiful 485-hectare country park. We are lucky enough to live within walking distance of the park, and have enjoyed many picnics, walks and frisbee games in the summer sunshine. It’s a lovely place, popular with dog-walkers and families alike, and is a wonderful pocket of greenery right near the town centre.

So when the snow came, we decided to spend an afternoon in Erddig, wandering through snowdrifts and taking photographs. Although the snow caused a lot of disruption in the town, it also transformed our surroundings into a Winter wonderland. Erddig was especially enchanting, and I was awestruck by the beauty we encountered on our walk. Snow may be annoying, but it has the power to make everything silent, calm, and utterly stunning. Here are some photos from our afternoon out – and you can find the whole set over on Flickr.
