The months of April and May are the start of bluebell season. The time when wooded areas are covered in bluebells. One of the wooded areas close to us is Ashenbank Woods near Cobham in Kent and these images were taken when the bluebells were in full swing in May. I thought for today I would show you three images where the theme of today’s post is purple pick ‘n’ mix. Each post with a purple flower.
You can see how covered the woodland floor was in the above photograph. And what made the woodland seem more beautiful and magical was the blossom that was in the trees. Another photograph we took from Ashenbank Woods shows again how far and widespread those bluebells were.
The bluebells seemed to go on and on forever. Another couple of places to visit which have beautiful bluebell displays are Emmett’s Garden and Hole Park at Rolvenden (which display a barometer letting you know when the height of the bluebell season is in full swing. Walking through woodland when the sun is glistening through the trees and you can hear the birds sing and see the beauty of all the bluebells is my idea of heaven.
We try to keep to the paths during this time of year. Simply because we don’t want to wander off of the tracks and spoil the bluebell displays. Now my hip is done, I can’t wait to get back out and see those bluebells.
My final image for this pick n mix theme is one I took at Hall Place Greenhouse. Again keeping with the theme of this post it is of a purple flower. In fact its appearance is very similar to a bluebell, with its curled up petals.
