Some of the Fancy Free Walks have “bluebells” listed among their summary text. This walk was one of them.

The author planned this walk on the first Sunday of May, whilst the bluebells were still on show in the woods, and enjoyed it enough to decide to write it up and illustrate it on the same day as the walk, ready for the Monday Bank Holiday.

This sounded like a good one to do while there were still bluebells to be enjoyed, and on the 5th anniversary of the walk’s creation, and so it proved to be.

But, as always, photos don’t do the blue haze of a bluebell carpet justice.
