This walk was a few weeks ago to visit the bluebell woods. We do this walk or one similar every year and I always love seeing the carpet of bluebells among the trees. Last year the wild garlic was in full flower as well and looked amazing. We walked with a small group of friends and our plan was to have lunch at the garden centre at the end of the walk before catching the train home.
Near the start there's a farm that has llamas. It's a little odd to see these guys in a field in England
They also have these large hairy sheep. Even their faces have wool on it.
There were lots of flowers to enjoy along the way.. Primroses,
and the Wayfarer tree had blossom just starting to open.
Oswald came with us. He was very well behaved on the train and sat quietly under the table when we had lunch.
Of course there were bluebells, after all that was what we'd come to see.
and there was also wild garlic.
The best part of this walk is going through the woods and seeing the bluebells on mass.
I also spotted this trunk and found the bark fascinating.
This weekend I have plans to get a lot of sewing done. I have a plan to make a baby quilt, well the top anyway. I have the fabric and I've decided on the pattern I'm making. I have no appointments or planned visitors so I should be able to get a lot done. I'm also planning on continuing the quilting on the compass quilt.
None of us felt like cooking tonight so we ordered in a Chinese meal. Scamp has just gone mad with excitement when the doorbell rang and I'm feeling pretty excited myself as we haven't had a Chinese meal in ages. Then I'm going to put on the TV or something I've recorded and finish stitching Mathilda. There are only a few finishing touches to do.
