I have been searching for bluebell woods near to where we live for week’s now and thankfully on the recommendation of a friend we found just that. A gorgeous display of bluebells, completely unspoilt in an area unknown to most. How could we have missed this spot and literally a few minutes from where we live – and it goes by the name of Parrot’s Drumble, how fantastic is that?
It’s a gorgeous space, perfect for a little adventure and despite my boys not seeming to keen we were all blown away by how beautiful it was. Hidden a few minutes into the woods you couldn’t help but smile when the trees parted to the most breath taking of displays of blue and green. And the smell, intoxicating in a good way and if it hadn’t rained the night before I think a picnic would have been in order. I can only imagine how more beautiful it would have been in April before it had been discovered by some of the locals. A visit next year is already in the diary, if only they lasted a little longer.
I have added this post to Darren’s #MySundayPhoto over on his blog Photalife. I should also say that with the help of Darren’s post Taking Photos of Bluebells I think I managed to capture them quite well, although another visit on my own might just seal the deal.
