It was a snowy 25 December afternoon, so we decided to head out here and see the white castle (no pun intended, Minnesotans!) asleep in the snow. The Czech Castles are usually 'asleep' during the winter months, shuttered and closed, but people can walk around and enjoy the ambience of royal living and view the garden landscapes in winter dress. This castle actually has a few winter tours and the Art Gallery is also open during the wintertime.
Here the hedges and sculptured yew or Taxus highlight the snow that's falling today:
