Springtime Bluebell Walk

Bluebell walk

Legend says that a field of bluebells is intricately woven with fairy enchantments…according to the Woodland Trust anyway, and I am sure they would know! I am quite willing to believe that these beautiful blue-carpeted woodlands are a bit magical.

It’s so peaceful there and relatively undisturbed, it was just us and what sounded like hundreds of pheasants in the woods! Mia bluebell hunt
