Bluebell wood

They were just beginning to come into bloom last time we walked this way, just a fortnight ago – we thought a check was in order. They’re not at their best yet, but coming along nicely. The sunshine was warm enough to persuade an orange tip butterfly to pose for us – but only for one photo…

Wandering

It’s bright and sunny, and though the wind’s cold, it’s far too good to stay in. We’ll wander – see where we get to – perhaps check how the bluebell wood is developing? Spring is really moving along now, with the blackthorn blossom taking centre stage.

Past their best…

…the bluebells, that is. We’re wandering on a sunny afternoon, with the bluebell wood as an objective – probably this year’s last visit.

Bluebells on the Edge

They’re everywhere now – must check out the local bluebell wood. Today we’re on Wenlock Edge, walking a circular route from Aston Munslow. There’s quite a variety of other blooms beside the paths and tracks – a riot of colour (I may be exaggerating). But for sheer quantity, the bluebells win, hands down.
