Drops

Another sunny morning today.  Two in a row?  There must be some mistake!  So, trying to ignore the copious quantity of other walkers out and about, enjoying the sunshine this morning, we decided to have a longer walk and see if the Snowdrops are starting to bloom yet.  Heading for Shipley Hill, we had to pick our way carefully through the mud and standing water, but our efforts were rewarded by the sight of the first flush of Snowdrops, just opening their flowers.
Still rather few in number, these harbingers of Spring were doing their best to brighten up the soggy, muddy and very wet woodland floor.
After all the rain and miserable weather we've had, it's nice to see something a little more cheery.
