Breaking my rule of writing these posts chronologically I am jumping to the present.
Today we visited The Snowdrop Festival at Cambo Gardens between St Andrews and Crail. It is two years since our last visit and the restoration work they have carried out on Cambo Country Estate is remarkable and its history is fascinating.
The snowdrop walks lead you through woodland; into more formal gardens where the multitude of varieties are labelled; then most beautiful of all beside the brook on a path towards the sea. A morning here is as enchanting as ever, but now there is a lovely cafe and visitor’s centre too; all tastefully housed in the restored stable block.
We have also visited Cambo in April, which was equally charming, but for anyone in Fife at this time of year, taking a stroll through banks of snowdrops all the way to The Fife Coastal Path and The North Sea is a must. I hope that the photos will speak for themselves.
Isn’t the tapestry below stunning too?
