Snowdrops and Spring Time

Wander down to the centre of our village, through wrought-iron church- gates, and you’ll find the first signs of spring.

There’s a stream, tumbling through the church garden, bordered by hundreds of beautiful snowdrops,

brave enough to pop their dainty heads up into the chilly February air.

On your way out of the garden, pause at the gates and wrap your hand around the Pineapple Finial. Pineapples are a sign of hospitality, letting you know you are welcome in this place.

 The seasons have turned and now it’s Autumn … you’re still welcome.

  1. Lovely post, I am enjoying seeing the snowdrops pop up in a neighbouring village, in fact this post has inspired me to go out and take some photos of them over the weekend!

    1. Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I’m sure your snowdrop photos will spread a liitle inspiration too. I’ll be looking out for your post. Have fun.

  2. Oh! how absolutely delightful! When I see these I am reminded of those lines by Robert Browning: “Oh to be in England, now that April’s there!”
    I know it’s not April, but the feeling is the same!
