Painswick, England

View from Painswick Rococo Gardens, England.

At the heart of the famed English Cotswolds are the Painswick Gardens, home to one of the largest plantings of snowdrops in England. The large number of snowdrops here give the appearance that the whole world has a light dusting of snow blanketing the green grass. The gardens are the sole local survivor of the Rococo trend that briefly erupted in England in the early 18th century. Neighbouring green fields and rolling hills dotted with quaint thatched cottages surrounding the gardens make the English countryside seem even more magical.
