Snowdrops abound at Otterhead Lakes

This morning, being sunny we went for a walk around Otterhead Lakes, one of my favourite places around here.  We went to see the carpets of snowdrops, they are so beautiful at the moment, all singles and they are so bountiful, its a joy to see.

The sun was glinting on the water of the first lake, and the water was so calm today.

There weren’t many people around today and we had the woodland path to ourselves as we walked towards the 2nd lake.

A pair of swans and their fairly mature cygnet were making their way along the stream through the woods.

As we approached the cascade we could see the water was flowing down it very fast.

The snowdrops looked just as lovely on the way back.

If you too want to see the snowdrops at Otterhead Lakes then come and stay in our B&B, its only a short drive away.

Rain, rain and more rain

Yesterday it didn’t stop raining, all night and all day.  We had 2 inches of rain, it was non stop.  In the morning we went down the hill from Buckland St Mary towards Bishopswood.  There is a river there and we went to see how it had swollen.  To both the right and left of the road are fords, which had completely overflowed.  The water was gushing at a tremendous speed and I wouldn’t have liked to try and cross either one.  This is the one to the right:

The Ford at Bishopswood

And this is the ford on the road to Marsh, which is left off the road to Bishopswood.  The water was coming down in such a torrent!

Anyway, today Monday, the rain has eased at last, so hopefully this water will die back. Our last couple of B&B guests left in the rain yesterday, but they were braving it to go visiting other places.  I think I would have gone straight home!! Visit us at www.lodgehousebandbsomerset.co.uk
