A Year of Wildflowers #2 – Snowdrop

Found just outside of Redditch at St. Leonard’s Church in Beoley. They have a Snowdrop Festival here every year.

You know winter’s almost done when you see these beauties. I found these at St. Leonard’s Church in Beoley just outside of Redditch.

Apparently, snowdrops are not a native UK wildflower (but I don’t care, I’m including them anyway). Although we tend to see them as a sign of the coming spring and therefore symbol of hope, back in the day it was considered a portent of death to see a single flower.


Something about this place makes me want to photograph it. It’s very diverse in culture and architecture. These are couple of photos I hurriedly took while rushing from a restaurant to the cinema while celebrating my son’s excellent exam results.
