Bluebell time

Colmers Hil, near Bridport

Last Sunday I met a couple of friends for a bluebell extravaganza of a walk!

woodland walk

The path took us through deep dark woods

deep dark woods

and lighter glades where the light was stunningly, beautifully, softly, frothily romantic

I took so many photographs, it has taken me all week to choose which ones to share( they certainly won’t all fit in one post).woodland

We stopped at Down House Farm

and sat out in the garden

  8. Absolutely loved your foresty pictures – so glorious! And how yummy that platter looks. But this other-side-the-ponder doesn’t remember what’s “bubble & squeak”?

    • Ah! now Bubble and Squeak is a glorious thing! HaHa!! It is actually a dish made traditionally from left over vegetables the day after a roast dinner. Left over cooked potatoes and brussels sprouts are chopped up (with other vegs added if you like) and fried. These were made into little burger shaped cakes and fried.
      Yum!

    What a walk! Those bluebells are beautiful! And we have a Portland in Maine. Our biggest city.

    • There are so many British place names in America aren’t there. The Isle of Portland here is famous for its Portland Stone which many of the buildings in London are built with. I wonder if your Portland was named after this one.

    • Gosh it is one of the best walks at bluebell time. This time of year is so gorgeous, I don’t think I will ever leave the UK in May again!
      So glad you like the photo – I must have taken about 50 of the path alone, each twist and turn was so photogenic.
