If you go down to the woods....
After hail, thunder and driving rain yesterday, some sun appeared today. I had been promising myself a trip to the bluebell woods and thought I'd better get down there while there are still some flowers left. It was very beautiful with the sunbeams winking through the trees and a profusion of spring flowers.
I had forgotten how lovely they smell. It was very muddy underfoot, but everything looks so lush.
My eldest son left school yesterday (apart from exams), and husband and youngest have just left for a week's holiday in Scotland: it's been hectic at home so it was nice just to take an hour out and feel the calm of the woods.
I found these incredible fungi. Very Hobbit-y. In fact, the woods had a magical air about them today.
Mossy logs, winding paths and carpets of flowers.
