A grasshopper's view of the snowdrops a couple of weeks ago. They're finished now and the daffodils are slowly arriving. In the UK most snowdrops are found around churches, graveyards and priories.
In medieval times the church planted them for the feast of candelmass. This feast for the purification of the virgin mother takes place 40 days after Christmas.
Whether fact or myth I don't know, but certainly is where you will see wonderful displays of these delicate flowers
