It was a lovely sunny morning, but with a cold wind. The garden is interesting any time of year as there are follies and sculptures to find.The restoration of the garden is based on a painting of 1748, when Painswick House was newly built.

The magnificent snowdrops are out early, as are daffodils and blossom, due to the mild winter.
