Snow Drops on Snowdrops
My last post about the cold snap that brought springtime snow to Somerset. This time focusing on snowdrops. Who doesn’t like a snowdrop in snow?
The combination of thick snow that hid most flowers, and the lateness of the snowdrop season, meant I had to look around for flowers that had managed to peak through the snow.
Priddy was my best hope as there was plenty of snow, and the flowers are often late high up in the hills.
This was the first one that I found. It was in a group that grows on the verge near the Hunters Inn. Virtually all the others nearby were completely covered in snow.
As snowdrops disappear, it is time for daffodils, primroses and celandines.
