Out and about late in the afternoon I came across this isolated patch of snowdrops, which to see in a wild rather than a contrived setting makes them all the more special.
I also stood and listened to a song thrush perched high in a tree, singing its heart out under the spotlight of the evening sun; there is no better sound than a melody sung by one of natures virtuosos; magical.
