Don't you just love this time of year walking in woods, I love the lime green of the new leaves.

So many different paths to follow we will go this way.

This wood used to be coppiced many years ago but now it is unmanaged and does what it wants to do.

Trees fall across the paths and new routes divert around them.

There are a number of trees in the woods maybe escapees from local gardens - Holly and Laurel.

In the distance the footpath leads across the fields into Clandon Park.

Our companion on the walk Meg, but she didn't stand still for photographs.

Today's walk was to find the best patch of Bluebells.

Bluebells found mostly on the edge of the woods next to the fields of Clandon Park.

Lovely to see the Bluebell carpet disappear into the distance better by eye than I captured by camera.

And yet more Bluebells.

Can't have too many photos of  Bluebells.

A nice collection of fungus.

Across the fields a sad sight of Clandon House after the recent fire. Trees planted in the foreground.

Homeward bound.

The tree trunks and the foliage make such a contrast.

I hope you enjoyed our walk through the woods we did.

  4. Hi Joanne,
    Thanks for celebrating my late Mom's birthday with a walk through the bluebells. We had scenery like this near our home in Yorkshire. I can almost smell the flowers all the way across the ocean!
