Snowdrops in Shropshire

Standard

The lanes around the Shropshire home of Anthony Sargeant are full of snowdrops at this time of the year. There is a story locally that a man in the 19th century went walking aound the lanes from his home in Morville planting snowdrops wherever he went. Whether true or not the snowdrop display of drifts of white along the roadside are sensational. The flowers in this clump have just reflexed out to reveal the delicately green tinged corona. This photograph was taken of a clump of snowdrops in the lane close to the house on 19th February 2017.
