Snowdrop Time

Taking our good friend Winnie shopping this morning, we were delighted to see the huge quantity of Snowdrops which are adorning her garden at the moment.  These small, white members of the Amaryllidaceae or Lily family, are always good to see as they herald the advent of Spring.
These particular specimens were pictured last year in the woods atop Shipley Hill - we haven't been up there for a few days as the weather has been too wet and the ground too muddy, but we're looking forward to seeing the carpet of white again this year.  Lets just hope for drier weather.
