We love it when it snows here at Shaw’s Corner! The Shaws loved trees, and the garden is full of yew trees, cedars and pines that have kept their leaves all winter, alongside dramatic shapes of the oaks, limes and apple trees that gave us a stunning autumn. When the snow comes, this all comes out in a gloriously dramatic contrast, whilst in the footprints it captures we get a chance to see more of the animals and wildlife that call the garden home – although this is mostly Socks!
George Bernard Shaw seems to have enjoyed it too! He took hundreds of pictures of the garden over the forty-six years he lived here, and there are some great ones of the garden covered in snow – even showing a cleared path through very think snow leading out to the writing hut!
Enjoy these pictures from our walk around the garden today, and Shaw’s all those decades ago!
