Bluebell Walk

Last week I received an email from the Woodland Trust with a visit woods link to help find bluebell woods in my local area. So I did a quick search and this place popped up. We haven't been here for a few years despite it being a 5 minute drive away. The reason for this I suppose is that when dad became too ill to walk Tilly we would drive over and pick her up and bring her to this spot, so it was with bittersweet memories we went back today.

We weren't disappointed by the blubell display. Just a few edged the path as we walked into the woods

and then there were more

and more the further we walked in.

T remembered being here with Grandad and found his way back down to the lake. This belongs to a private angling club and there is no admittance but we get to enjoy a good view of it.

One thing we hadn't found in our walks there before was a path which led out into a field where for these 3 playfighting turned into a mass tickling session

and we all went 'ah' when we spotted this foal in the next field.
