Billions and Billions of Bluebells!

Did everyone have a lovely Easter Sunday? After a rather untraditional Spanish tapas lunch, we headed to Ashridge Park on the edge of Hertfordshire and spent hours wandering round the ancient woods. And what a treat - the bluebells are in flower!
It was magical! I've never seen so many! In this part of the woods there are lots of narrow winding paths so you can really get in and walk amongst the flowers.
 
The sight drew the crowds too - crazed children bounded about, parents posed their kids for idyllic family photos, photographers everywhere struggled not to get each other in shot...
 
And of course, the cover of woodland was the perfect place to avoid the hot sun on a day like today!

Happy Easter, all. Hope everyone's having a fab long weekend!

I just love the scent in a bluebell wood.

One of my all-time favourite sights is a sheer carpet of bluebell flowers. And the perfume!
Lucky you, what a lovely day. You timed it perfectly.
