This looked so pretty in today's bright winter sunshine I thought I'd share it with you. The flint construction is very typical of East Anglian churches, as there's little or no decent building stone in the region. The snowdrops grow on the bank either side of the gateway into the churchyard. Later in the spring there will be celandines among them. There was a woodpecker drumming somewhere nearby (I never saw it, so I don't know which species it was), and the very first of the blackthorn flowers just opening in a sunny hedgerow.
