Shropshire Snowdrops

IMG_5900 ps

Photographed by Anthony J Sargeant (Tony) who is privileged to live (and up until his retirement some years ago where he worked as an antique dealer) in Shropshire and London. At this time of the year the banks of the Shropshire lanes are in many places saturated with snowdrops as in this lane close to Skipton Church.

Afternoon Sunshine in a Shropshire Churchyard

Not far from the Shropshire home of Anthony J Sargeant there is a tiny 12th Century Church which is surrounded by an ancient graveyard. Tony photographed these snowdrops bursting through the moss and grass that lies over the bones of generations of Shropshire women, children and men buried beneath. Photographed on a freezing crystal clear day, February 25th 2018 the snowdrops announce that spring cannot be far behind.
