The last snowdrops
The snowdrops have lasted well this year because of the cool weather but recent warm days are bringing their display to an end. So I hurried along to the Abbey at the other end of the village (Thorney Abbey) to catch them before they were over. Most of the soil is covered with them at this time of year and although they are just the single and double common snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) they make up in quantity what they may lack in finesse.

This reminds me that I really need to get some winter-blooming bulbs into my own garden this year. Love them!
