As the snowdrops loose their white shine down in south Somerset I headed north and high to visit Priddy up in the Mendip Hills in the hope of finding flowers that were behind the curve.

Priddy

The scattered village of Priddy sits in the middle of its parish high on the Mendip Hills in Somerset.  Looking over the village green is the Church of St Lawrence and the local school.  Priddy is famous for its sheep fair and folk festival.  Not so famous for its snowdrops.

I found very few snowdrops around the church and it was way too cold to hang around photography them.  Instead, the verges alongside the village road were bathing in the warmth of the low winter sun.  Warmer – but still freezing.

Priddy has a slightly wild and high feel to it that is reflected in the patches of snowdrops.  They hug the walls and hedgerows with lots of untidy character.

A bit of snow, and maybe more on its way!
