A Rash of Snowdrops

(viewed 450 times)
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.

Out Walking


1. The backdrop as I headed for Roman lakes.
2. A patch of blue sky.
3. Rooting about for water.
4. Heading down hill; stream or footpath?
5. The boat is moored across the valley on the contour where the towpath hedgerow can be seen bordering the lower edge of the green field in the top centre of the picture.
