Cliffs and Bluebells

Continuing our bluebell walk in West Dorset

we decided not to walk up to Thorncombe Beacon, but could see others enjoying the view

a perfect day for a paraglide

We climbed the hill and over the stile

to see yet more spectacular views to the East towards Portlandview of Portland

and as we turned inland, Westerly views towards Devon

We took time to smell the blossom in the hedgerow, I think this is a wild plum

we must return in September to find out.

Through the gate, with a look over our shoulders at that glorious scene, saying farewell to the sea we continue

gateway, path, coast

onward through more bluebell woods

to marvel at the way the light plays through the trees,

joining Cee’s Flower of the Day

and no matter how often I see it, my heart never fails to skip and dance when, standing in deep shade, Β and spying a shaft of sunlight bathing a patch of bells in silver lightbluebells in sunlight

Magic all around us

A time to stop and breathe and notice how all the senses are tingling with pure joy, blessings counted, smiles exchanged between friends and for at least the hundredth time we say how lucky we are to live here……

  2. Idyllic! And don’t you just love stiles??! Although we encountered a few on my one and only trip to England and Wales, I’ve only ever found one where I live. Keep these beautiful pictures coming!

  5. We don’t have bluebells here in New Jersey, but we do have buttercups and daisies and other fine wildflowers. I would love to stand in a sea of bluebells though…I like the photograph of the sea through the frame of the gate. Beautiful.

  7. It all looks so lovely, especially the bluebells and the sea. I am too late for bluebells but I must include going to the beach when I give myself a ‘holiday week’. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Isn’t it breath-taking! Blue skies and spring green positively glows when you throw in a that purple-blue haze from the bluebells. It just takes the breath away! And the sea – any where I see it I feel at home! That’s lifted my day – here winter has settled in and it has been sleeting off and on all day. No colour out there for us on our walk this morning πŸ™‚
