It's the bluebell time of year again, and what a delight!
I missed them last year as we were in New York, and I missed them the year before, but I have made up for it this year - this was my fourth walk in the woods.
A beautiful sunny day, but the light plays tricks with you sometimes and everything can look dark
I love walking in the woods at any time of year, there is something magical about them
but when the ground is covered with a carpet of blue, it is something else....
It's quite a long walk, the bluebell walk, it takes me two hours
all the more to enjoy the beauty of it all
I get lost in my own thoughts
and I love the paths that snake up
as for the scent .... it is heavenly
Now I have reached the top of the slight uphill climb, and the huge clearing is a mass of blue with bits of white
I can never manage to capture the solidity and mass of the blue with my camera
I love the way the light filters through the trees
Here is another photograph of the clearing.
