Dolhyfryd, Lawnt, Denbigh, Denbighshire LL16 4SU End of February - early March
Virginia and Michael Cunningham have kindly invited members to share their fantastic crocus landscape. The crocuses are spread through the lower meadows from corms originally planted in 1840. This year they are absolutely stunning so a visit is highly recommended any time in the next few weeks from now. Members may help themselves to visit the site. Crocuses are best seen on a sunny day.
