Spring is on its Way

Although the temp was about 3C with hazy sunlight I decided we would wend our way through the back of the village churchyard. Hopefully the Snowdrops and Winter Aconite would be in bloom and easier to photograph. I usually go on really sunny days but that tends to wash out the colours.

We were both well wrapped up as the gentle breeze made it feel more like 1C. As soon as we reached the back of the churchyard there were plenty of clumps of Snowdrops to be seen:

When we neared the front path the Winter Aconite patch came in to view:


Unfortunately they were already past their best:

But still great to see signs of plant life emerging as we near Spring.

All photos taken with the Nikon Coolpix S9050 and processed in iPhoto.


  1. These are good to see as everything is covered in the white stuff here.

  2. Snowdrops are just past their bast here too as well. Next up, crocus and squill in my local cemetery.

  3. oh, love the snowdrops! and all the moss on those headstones!

  4. I miss seeing green. The snowdrop trees are wonderful to see this time of year.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
