SU1219 : Snowdrops in the churchyard, Whitsbury

Snowdrops in the churchyard, Whitsbury
Snowdrops in the churchyard, Whitsbury
Although this attractive little flower symbolizes purity by its whiteness, it is widely regarded as an omen of death and should not be taken into a house where anyone is ill. It is dangerous indeed to take a snowdrop into any house, for even if no one is sick, a death will result in the family before the flowers next bloom. This belief probably came about because the snowdrop blooms only in the winter - a time when much sickness is about.
