This church in one the Camelot parishes of South Somerset sits hidden down a narrow walled lane in the tiny village of Maperton. The lane is lined with beech trees and must look good covered in autumn leaves. But today the church sits in a ring of snowdrops.
The first thing you see on reaching the end of the church lane is the steep bank of snowdrops hugging the building. But there are clumps of snowdrops all around the churchyard.
I dense carpet of snowdrops covers the banking around the church.
While snowdrops are starting to turn in Somerset these flowers are still in good condition. Perfect white.
Who is pollinating these flowers? Looks like flies are the only insects around. Not seen a bee around here for some time.
