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!


Wild Garlic


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.
