Shepton Mallet is often overshadowed by its more well known neighbours of Glastonbury and Wells. But earlier in the year it put on another fabulous display of snowdrops, and now it is the time for cowslips.
Illuminated by the headlights, and brake lights, of passing cars thousands of yellow cowslips line the busy roads.
The early spring morning light is like cream pouring down on the flowers.
An ant ventures up to the flower heads.
