I first photographed these snowdrops several weeks ago. Since then we have had more than a foot of snow, much of which hung around for almost a week.
The snowdrops are undaunted and, in their blanket of leaves, are thriving. Today the temperature rose to 16 C which must have been quite a shock to them. Next week overnight temperatures are due to be as low as -9C which will be equally shocking!
It was strange to go out today without putting on layers and layers of clothing.
