Spring Snowflakes in Sunny Shropshire

Anthony J Sargeant thought the reader might like the alliteration – they look like snowdrops but flower slightly later in early spring in England (today is 2nd April 2017). It has been a beautiful Spring day. (Spring Snowflakes – Leucojum vernum)

These tiny flowers were photographed by Anthony Sargeant yesterday 30th March 2017. They are growing in the hedgerow around his Shropshire home. Suddenly Spring has arrived in England and the hedgerows are blossoming with many wild flowers as well as some escapees from domestic gardens.
