Model Farm near wells sits in the middle of crisscrossing footpaths. North of the small city of Wells it is surrounded by woods and hills at the end of a quiet lane.
Catching up with posts on the recent springtime winter weather in Somerset the farm was deep in snow when I visited a few days ago. With grey skies it was not the best weather for panoramic views instead I focused on the details in the snow.
The soft dry snow that had been falling for a few days was topped by wetter snow brought in by Storm Emma giving the drifts a hard crust. This allowed it to form a series of weird folding shapes.
I am sure how a bird walked up this vertical bank of snow.
This ivy leaf was slowly sinking into the snow.
Leaving the farm the snow was still deep.
Really deep in places.
