Signs of Spring

Snowdrops in shaft of light

At last…the first days when you can feel the warmth of the sun on your back… aconites and snowdrops in full bloom… realising sunset is well past 5 o’clock…it must mean spring is on its way. These photos of pretty snowdrops and winter aconites were taken on a recent snowdrop walk on the Norfolk Lexham Estate in aid of their ancient church.

Nature has been capricious this spring with early promises of warmth vanishing back into chilly weather and rain, which of course we need badly. Nonetheless spring flowers have still been emerging and are still a sign of better weather to come..
