There's just a week left to see the drifts of snowdrops at Raveningham Gardens.
The gardens opened for snowdrop season at the start of the month, with visitors invited to wander around the main garden area, taking in the 18th century walled kitchen garden with its large glasshouses, the lake and contemporary sculptures.
Raveningham Hall, located between Beccles and Loddon, is the home of Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon. And it was Sir Nicholas' mother, Priscilla Bacon, who added snowdrops to the garden.
Snowdrop season continues until Tuesday, February 28, with the garden closed on Saturday. It is open from 11am to 4pm, or dusk if earlier.
Proceeds from the openings on February 12 and 19 are being donated to the Priscilla Bacon Lodge Hospice in Norwich.
