Off we go on a short walk in the woods – come fantasise with me!
The bluebells at Dockey Wood are protected from the feet of enthusiastic visitors by low fences of branches. Beyond those low barricades, the lines of trees guide your eyes towards the blues and lavenders of the Lady’s Nightcaps and Witches’ Thimbles – yes, the bluebell has many different names.
Almost half the world’s bluebells are found in the UK, and it always seems that a good proportion of them are spread across this small wood on the Ashridge Estate – a real treat for me and my camera.
The weather was in a changeable mood on my visit last week, with light levels dropping fast, and rain even faster. A touch of fantasy crept in, and I was happy.
Now let’s go and investigate one of the other delights at this wood, the great ice cream van out in the car park. A tempting treat, whatever the weather. Enjoy!
