Snowdrop Carpet

Dense cluster of perfect white

How wonderful to see a river of pearly white snowdrops on these murky drizzley days of low light levels, a slash of white across the damp drear. I have never seen so many thickly crowded in a woody clearing.

A path of snowdrops

The flowers so delicate and fleshy with such strength to push through the moist brown leafy twiggy undergrowth, dwarfing the surrounding seedlings of nettle and ladies bedstraw.

Pert whiteness

This spring time treat is on show now, get out to see them, even in the rain, an uplifting promise of things to come.
