I usually don't go walking at Winterthur in the rain, but it was an on and off kind of drizzle yesterday on March 1, as the gardens opened for the first time this year.

Down the walking path, there were winter aconites (yellow), snowdrops winter aconites(white) and crocuses (purple).

 

Out in the meadow there were pieces of machinery carving out mown pathways leading to what is going to be a major outdoor exhibit soon featuring garden "follies," in the English Manor style. I could see one temple follyGrecian temple under scaffolding and a platform with a building permit for a "mirrored structure." Should be interesting!

In the koi pond area, I dodged an electric vehicle full of trimmed branches which stopped for me to pass. And then I saw the ripples spreading out from the raindrops as the koi peacefully swam about. Love this place!
