Snowdrop Festival



Last weekend saw the second Shepton Snowdrop Festival
Organised by the local horticultural society, it is to celebrate James Allen - Victorian nurseryman from Shepton Mallet, who propagated snowdrops from the wild and introduced them into our gardens.
During the last year thousands of snowdrops were planted around the town, giving quite a show now, and in coming years, as they will spread.
The 3 days was filled with activities around the town, and you could buy many unusual snowdrops in the market place.

  2. Beautiful, a promise of Spring waiting for me too somewhere in the future! My snowdrops usually raise their heads through snow at the end of March.

  3. It is such a great year for snowdrops. They are so uplifting after a long winter as Spring cannot be so far away. Mike planted some special ones last year and they came up looking a bit lonely. I hope they will thicken up year on year. I love the way they naturalise in drifts.
    A lovely way of brightening your town.
