This week the church in the tiny village of Holton has looked at its best against the beautiful blue skies.

This February I have been running around capturing the snowdrops in the villages that make up Camelot in South Somerset.

I ran out of time in Holton and after photographing the church I had to get home.  On my return the flowers were sadly passed their best.  But I wanted to bring my Camelot collection together so I have refreshed some of my earlier pictures in and around this village.

Snowdrops

This week I only found one single snowdrop in the churchyard.  Those at the side of the road, that was once the A303, soon lost their white shine so I headed up a footpath through the fields around the village to find groups of flowers sheltering from the winter weather under banks and hedgerows.

When the flowers are nestled in amongst the twigs and scrub you need to seek out the best flowers with the best backgrounds – then get down low.

And Finally…

Between Holton and Higher Holton is Holton Cross. Here there is a steep back of self seeded primroses.  They are starting to bloom – I will definitely return soon!
