Bluebell Wood

What a beautiful morning, but this afternoon it's back to typical April showers. It doesn't matter though, we spent a lovely hour or so wandering around the local bluebell wood earlier, it was gorgeous - warm, sunny and highly scented. The ground was still wet and muddy from all of the rain we've had over the past few days, but that was good because it made the flowers and earth smell even more.

This view caught my eye, the bright yellow field in the background, a farmhouse and then the bluebells and trees in the foreground. The bluebells are not as prolific this year as they were last but they are a bit earlier, so maybe that has something to do with it. It was still a good show.

There are some really old trees in this woodland and the crows have built there nests very high up in them this year.

A lovely morning out.

Hi Kim,

We have quite the opposite weather here in northeastern Minnesota in the US. Yesterday, we got six more inches of snow after having 18" last week. And just think, most of that last snowfall was almost gone before the dump we got yesterday. Oh well, that's Minnesota weather for ya, you never know!
