The first of February brought the most significant snowfall of this year’s winter so far and decorated Ellern Mede’s grounds beautifully.

All our staff made it to work, and one patient decided to put on her Christmas music again. We are lucky to have a large expanse of garden, with great views over Mill Hill, London and also to have gardens at Ellern Mede Barnet that attract plenty of birds, even in the cold. This little sparrow was outside looking in.
