No snow just snowdrops at Fyvie Castle

Welcome friends! Once again I am delighted to be joining the LLB gang for Nature Friday

This week's expedition is to Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire. I am pleased to report that in winter the castle is closed - which means that dogs get taken for walks round the grounds rather than being locked in cars while the humans disappear inside the building for hours and hours looking at old furniture and paintings (yawn). 

Hmm. I think I can smell spring in the air.

And oh look a carpet of snowdrops! Isn't it pretty?

After last week's 'squashed daffodils incident' I hope you can see I am being careful where I sit. 

Happy Nature Friday folks!


  1. that was fabulous to visit that castle in winter together... it is beautiful and the area is great too... who wants to wait in a car when there are so much things to discover?

  2. Da castle and da flowers are so pretty!

    And you're looking very fluffy Bertie!

  3. Look at all of those beautiful snowdrops and the castle is just gorgeous, Bertie!

  4. Bertie OMDS you look dashingly handsome in your dotty bandanna and the color is purrfect!
    What a handsome stone castle and grounds and the weather was lovely. Thank you for showing us the pretty snowdrop posies
    Hugs Cecilia

    That is a most beautifur carpet of white that you managed to not sit upon Bertie lad!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. That looks like a beautiful place to go for a walk. We love seeing those pretty little flowers too since we won't see any flowers for months.

  7. Those are big snowdrop fields. Beautiful. And I think you are very clever not sitting on them.

  8. We’d love to be racing through those snowdrops, but,alas, SHE would be inside looking at the boring stuff!

  9. Oh Bertie that looks much more beautiful that what we have right now. Wed we woke up to about 6 inches of snow that drifted terribly and kept snowing most of the day. Bitter cold this morning -6 degrees F. We can't wait for spring and flowers

  10. Although we are biased about the joy and beauty of snow, we think those snowdrops are very pretty - they sure do make a beautiful backdrop for handsome Bertie!!!

  13. The snowdrops are gorgeous and Mom is drooling over the castle. She has always wanted to see one.

  14. Hmmm, we are wondering how hard it would be to move to Scotland. Castles and no snow.

  15. Hi Bertie. Racing around the grounds sounds like fun.I think we would run right through those flowers, though. Oh, and Mom says she loves your groom. XOX Lucy and Xena
