So today we took a walk in the ByBrook valley, NE of Bath, and headed for a snowdrop hotspot. We were a bit early in the season for the full flourish, but these delicate white harbingers of spring still looked a picture.
Unusually, this is a large colony of this species growing in a semi-natural woodland on a very steep slope. Someone, a long time ago, must have planted a few and today there are hundreds.
Anyway, I donned my waterproof trousers (steady ladies) and got down and dirty for these pictures. I now appreciate the importance of a tripod.
They feel quite alpine-like when you look at the close-up - beautiful.
