Pen Selwood Daffodils
I was drawn to this village when browsing through the Discover South Somerset website. It was their article on the Moldram’s Ground nature reserve that caught my eye. I knew it was not the best time of year for wild flowers but perhaps the churchyard would have snowdrops or daffodils?
The instant I arrived at Pen Selwood it was obvious that this would be a great place to visit.
My first sight of the village was a finger post road sign surrounded by daffodils. Even the horse posed for the photograph.
Behind, there was a wonderful village sign next to the village hall and the church.
From the hall was the sound of chatting and laughter. The Black Bin Cafe is setup in the hall every other Friday – on the days the black rubbish bins are collected.
Everyone was so friendly to a stranger poking around their village with a camera.
I can imagine that this sign has been photographed a thousand times or more.
The large churchyard was full of daffodils.
I liked this line of trees – are trying to spell out a word – looks like vrive or perhaps drive?
Back to the daffodils…
…on this lovely sunny early spring day the flowers looked perfect.
I really liked the map on the outside of the village hall. All those field names and landmarks. I hope no one minds me including a part of the map in this post.
The villagers clearly hold this old sycamore with affection. I’m not sure what is going to happen to it next.
I found the nature reserve. I plan to visit later in the spring.
Inspired by the village map I also found the old parish pump.
So I’m definitely going to plan another visit. If I time it right, and remember to bring some money this time, I may pop into the cafe. I need to ask if there should be a gap in the village name – Pen Selwood or Penselwood?
