At Last!

Ever since we moved back down to the south coast I have been longing each spring to go the bluebell woods at Arlington.  It’s something we did as children and I love re-living childhood memories!  Well, last week we finally made it.  Abi had a day off and the sun was shining in the middle of what was proving to be a week of very random weather patterns.

All I can say is that it was amazing!  Abz took these photos and did a great job  but you still can’t capture the depth of those bluebells that just seemed to continue on and on.  The bluebells are in one of the few areas of ancient woodland left in the country that is carefully coppiced to preserve and encourage both trees and bluebells.  It was just so beautiful but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. DSCF5389

If Abi sees this one I’ll be in trouble!!

It was just so awe inspiring.   We made it back to the car just in time for the sun to disappear and a sleet shower to add to the random weather!

I hope you enjoyed the photos and that you all enjoy the rest of your week and Happy Crafting!

  1. Stunning! How long are the bluebells in flower? It is good to know that past generations have carefully maintained this forest for our generations and beyond. If only modern generations would have the same foresight and value our natural world more. (As I express this sentiment, I think of the ridiculous decisions of Australian politicians over the Great Barrier Reef). I am sure your forest hosts a diverse number of species. Beautiful pictures of both flora and ‘fauna’ 😉 Lovely that you could visit the bluebells together. Keep smiling!

    1. It really was amazing. They are in full boom for a couple of weeks, we saw then just before their peak and it was still stunning! Yes, a little care here and there makes a huge difference, it makes you think what a difference then that governments decisions will make, either for God or bad!!
