In the autumn the lane up the church is covered in golden leaves. Today at the top of lane there is a steep bank next to the church which is covered in snowdrops.
The bank is a sea of pure white snowdrops.
Amongst the snowdrops are the small green flowers of dog’s mercury (Mercurialis perennis). This is an ancient woodland indicator reminding you that this is a very old location that has been here for hundreds of years..
Snowdrop season is coming to an end. I had to search around for the best looking flowers.
This may be my last snowdrop visit of this winter. This is sad but something else will be around the corner.
If you visit take care on the slippery paving around the church – I nearly went.
