It is my birthday today!

 We started the day at Dunham Massey which is a National Trust property with a winter garden.We didn't expect there to be much out but were pleasantly surprised

 This is the house which is closed at the moment for winter.

                                           Winter aconites.

                                      Wonderful silver birches.
                                          Daphne.I can't remember which variety but wonderfully scented.

                                          This is a shrub which was new to me but again a lovely perfume.



                                          Even daffodils.

                                          Witch hazel.

                                         Witch hazel again.Beautifully scented.

From here we moved on to Salford Museum and Art Gallery.They have recreated a Victorian street with about 12 shops.Fascinating.We had lunch here and a good look round.We then navigated our way through Manchester (lots of traffic and traffic lights.Not used to that here in North Wales!!!) to our daughter's in Northwich.Sarah and the girls cooked tea .We had pro secco and birthday cake.Lots of love and laughter.
We are back home now and have just had a phone call from our son and granddaughter who have just arrived in Wisconsin.Sunny but minus 12 degrees.
I have had lots of cards and presents and am truly blessed to have had such a wonderful day.
