Spreading a bit of light and pleasure to those confined by the current crisis. See post 1, here, for an explanation.
This is the 23rd post.
Today, we set off to a part of the forest where we know bluebells dwell. These lovely spring flowers can be seen in many forests, laying a fine carpet of bright blue beneath the trees, and are often seen as quintessentially English.
We visited three sites where I’d spotted the tell-tale leaves earlier this year. Unfortunately, our crop has yet to mature. There are lots of leaves still in evidence, but many plants have yet to reach the stage of flowering. So, instead of a carpet, we were faced with odd flowers spotting a carpet of green!
Undaunted, we continued our walk, enjoying the peace and serenity of the woods. I did find a few flowers I could picture, but no mass display, yet.
But the broadleaved trees are now coming fully into leaf and giving a fine display of their own, so I leave you with a couple of pictures of those as well.

I hope the pics bring some pleasure. Enjoy!
Keep safe and well, everyone!
