last of the bluebells

I regularly walk through a tiny little woodland on my daily ramblings with Walter. This year, the bluebells, though late to arrive, have been especially beautiful, mingling here with the prolific three-cornered leek, and bathed in dappled sunlight.

We tread this path often, and I love seeing how the woodland changes through the seasons. It's also on the route we use to walk to one of our favourite tea rooms, set in a beautiful walled garden, bordering Trengwainton (our regular visits there are a story for another day).

I've missed the bluebells this year so it's been good to see yours, and always better in dappled light I think.
Have a great weekend Walter and you x

stunning Diana! Bluebell woods are such beautiful places, I often think how lucky we are to have such lovely woodlands - they always have a different face to show with each season. Love to you and Walter x

That is our rainy day tea room when in St Ives! i agree it is a beautiful place - we love the gardens. Walter has the most gorgeous munchkin face. xxx

Bluebells never fail to make me gasp, especially when growing in a wood. These are such wonderful images, Diana.

The bluebell Woods where I grew up were also full of wild garlic - when I saw your lovely pictures, it was that scent which accompanied them in my imagination. Bizarre.

Hello Walter!

I seem to have missed out on my annual bluebell walk this year and am really not sure how that happened. Your photos are gorgeous, I can almost smell their beautiful scent.
