Every where I’ve been on-line recently someone is talking about the bluebell woods. I love woods, I love bluebells, I want a piece of this action!
The trouble is we are fairly new to town and I’ve not discovered a woods with bluebells yet. I’ve not looked either, till now.
I asked Dave nicely if we could go to our local hill Warton Crag. There are loads of woods on it. I felt this was my best shot! I also asked if he’d carry his son! Here we are at the start of our walk:
To the woods we go…
The weather was beautiful, 5 minutes earlier it had been raining with hail. I managed to catch the rain clouds in the distance. We’re so lucky to have this hill on our doorstep. It looks out over Morecambe bay, you can see the South Lakes and surrounding areas from it.
We completely veered off track and didnt head to the wooded area. The Sun drew us out from the trees and up the hill to see the views. No bluebells up on the top of the hill.
We walked a different route back down. I swear I’ve never been on the same route twice up there. What did we find? Some bluebells one minute walk from the car. I teeny tiny patch.
I think we in the North of England need to wait another week or two to get the best of our bluebells! I also need to go out on a day when it’s not been raining and I can take the Robot out and take some arty pictures.
Watch this space! What are your experiences of bluebell woods? Have you found some yet?
