We enjoyed the bluebells in Suffolk recently, and it’s nice to know that Kent also has some reasonable displays!
and Shoreham Woods:
I went for a walk in Shoreham Woods yesterday, and the bluebells were superb.
As a bonus, all the paths were dry – I think this is the first time I’ve noticed this here. It’s certainly been a dry spring!
Not sure if it was just the mist, or the new bright LED lamps, but this scene looked as odd in real life as it does in the photo!
This area of Shoreham Woods has always been boggy, but the heavy rain over the winter has proved too much for one part:
A new path has been laid at High Elms. Whilst I’m sure it will tone down with mud after a while, it currently looks just a little out of place.
Unfortunately, a very large tree nearby didn’t survive yesterdays storm
A splendid walk at High Elms yesterday. Cold but clear, and plenty of colour from the remaining leaves on the trees.
Pondwood is part of the National Trust woodland at Petts Wood. There was a major clearance of sycamore trees during Autumn 2011, which left large areas of this wood clear.
This spring, these areas are full of bluebells and wild garlic – the latter I never remember seeing here in such large quantities.
Nice to see some water in the ponds again!
What a lovely sight; poppies everywhere. Shame I couldn’t get closer to take a better photo.
