Bluebells

That’s it, I’ve had enough…I’ve seen more bluebells this year than I have in the rest of my life put together and I’m officially bored of them now…for at least the next 11 months anyway!


Another visit to Garnetts Wood in Barnston where the bluebells are still doing pretty well. I like how the depth of field gives the illusion that the bluebells are swirling around the bottom of the image.

We visited  Arger Fen & Spouse’s Vale in Suffolk today and had a good walk around the area. The bluebells are in full flow – I have included a shot of them below – but there were also loads of these flowers around and we weren’t sure what they were, so I took a shot to find out…and ended up really liking the shot, so went with this, rather than the bluebells for today’s shot.

We had a walk around Garnetts Wood this afternoon…this shot was taken just before the heavens opened and we got soaked. On returning home (about 3 miles away) we found there had been no rain at all there!


We took a quick trip out to Perry Green this afternoon to see how the Bluebells were doing. Whilst it’s still a little early in the season, I can conform they are doing well but there are still more to appear!


A quick run out to Tilty this afternoon bagged this bluebells shot, along with some (far away) deer sightings. The waterfall shot I wanted to take was impossible due to a fallen tree…which I thought was a reasonable excuse to move on…

Here are a couple of the deer shots…

The bluebells are well and truly out in Essex now. These were taken in a small wooded area around Quendon this afternoon.

A few more picks after the break…

115/366 Bluebells at Castle Hedingham

The rain abated for long enough today for us to pop out to Castle Hedingham – a Norman castle over near Braintree and Halstead. Built around 1140 you certainly get a feeling of history walking around it.  One advantage of the terrible weather is that we pretty much had the Castle to ourselves.

The castle is in some quite beautiful grounds including a very nice wood with plenty of bluebells.
