This is a our village church, ancient and in the middle of fields. This time of the year the lovely churchyard is covered in these gorgeous double snowdrops.
Somebody must have planted these a long time ago for them to have spread so much. I’m not very familiar with snowdrops so have no idea what variety they are, maybe somebody can tell me?

Our old church yard also has lots of snowdrops. I love these old churches. Lovely church, do you know when it was built?

It is a really beautiful Church. I have some of these doubles . My Mum sent them up from her garden. I thought I'd lost them, but no, they are spreading. They don't do as well as the singles.

Thank you for the id Bjs, I looked it up and saw they've got a honey scent. Back tomorrow to stick my nose in before they've all gone over.
It's a little Norman gem Sbg, can't find any trace or mention of anything saxon but suspect strongly there was one there. They're my passion too, I can never pass one without exploring.
