You could be forgiven for thinking that the snow settling across Norfolk today has been here for a few months.

That’s because across the district snowdrops have been budding and blooming, creating their own bright blanket across the region.

Gordon Robertson, from Roughton said: “I took these photos at Horstead Mill last Thursday.

“I was on my way to Norwich on a lovely sunny morning when I decided to take a detour via the Mill.

“I was not disappointed as there was an abundance of snowdrops.”

Mr Robertson added: “The snowdrops were out earlier this year. They usually appear during January but my first sighting was at Brampton Mill near Buxton at the end of December.”

There are currently snowdrop walks happening all over Norfolk for visitors to enjoy.
