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.
