At this time of year the bluebells are at their best. They turn the brown and green undergrowth into a blanket of blue.
(Mum just can’t stop taking pictures)
This close up photo of a bluebell is one of many, I’m competing with mum to get the perfect shot!
In amongst the bluebells i’m spotting quite a few early purple orchids that are growing in only the sunniest parts of the wood.
Other things that are coming out are the ferns. This ‘unfurling fern’ along with the bracken and brambles will be the next dominant plants in the wood. They out grow the bluebells, eventually obscuring them from view.
