Sunday morning in the woods.

 We've had a good amount of rain, much needed after the dry month of April, and the landscape is transformed by fresh, green growth. 



The Saturday newspaper listed the twenty best bluebell woods to visit throughout the country. Happily the woods at either side of our village had not been included! Lockdown has seen a change in the pattern of people passing through our small community; cyclists bombing down the road as though it were a one-way street, walkers who sit on the village seat to eat their snacks and then leave their rubbish behind and cars randomly parked while dog walkers from who knows where exercise their pets.
                                                                                              
Sunday morning and the sun is shining, time to take a walk in the woods. It is damp by the lakeside and there is no sign of ducklings.





We have the woods to ourselves.

Strong winds have brought down quite a lot of dead wood.




It is wonderful to be in a bluebell wood on a day like this.






Back at home I take a wander round the garden.

The frost hasn't killed my tree peonies but it has certainly put payed to a good display of flowers for this year.

I'm grateful for the buds that have survived.



The allium leaves are dying back as their flower heads fatten.


Everything promises at this time of year!






And the tulips are still flowering.

  1. In all the years I have been regularly coming to England, not once have I been over at the right time to see the bluebells, I was always either too late or too early in the year. But I live in hope!

    1. It is all too easy to miss seeing the bluebells, they are at their peak for such a short period of time. Perhaps this is why they seem so special!

  2. You have a lovely garden. The bluebell photos remind med of my childhood on the Surrey/Sussex border.

  3. Your gardens are so beautiful. The setting is gorgeous and your rock walls and home are perfect compliments to your flowers. I really need to add some bluebells to my plant list!

    1. The snails love my walls as well! I've got blue and pink bluebells in my garden but I've put them where I'm not worried about them spreading.

  4. How beautiful it all is. The pink tulips are just so lovely. I would love to visit a Bluebell wood - in fact I did on our recent Garden Tour to a colder climate, but it was out of season and it was just clumps of what looked like grass. We will have to revisit in Spring.
    It is much too warm for them in our sub-tropical Brisbane.

    1. It is a lovely time of year, everything looking so fresh. But sub-tropical Brisbane sounds good to me - it is cold and rainy here today!

    1. For the briefest time a bluebell wood is quite magical with its mist of colour and delicate perfume. It is very transient,having waited patiently as the leaves appear, suddenly it is all over!

  6. Lovely garden. This is my favourite season, last year locked down in Yorkshire I too was happily walking through bluebell woods. In Italy we are planting outdoor tomatoes, cucumbers and aubergines, roses and geraniums are in flower, it’s hot.

  11. I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting (smithhackingcompanyltd@gmail.com} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!!
