The same hedge bottom where these are located has snowdrops in flower much earlier this year – since 7 January.
Are they wild? Snowdrops don’t colonise by seeding except possibly in very mild conditions and so it is more likely that they were planted as bulbs at some point along this particular hedge bottom, beside a farm track, where they have been left to do their own thing.
Their blooms should not be taken indoors, as it is said to bring bad luck and have been described as a ‘Corpse in its shroud’ An old wives tale? I don’t know, but won’t be tempting fate.

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    They colonise by bulblets, we used to plant these along our hedges in the UK and let them run wild, making drifts of white in the spring.
