There is a small remnant of ancient woodland close to where I live and in the spring it’s carpeted with bluebells. There are wood anemones, too but they are normally still asleep when I walk early in the morning 😊 It’s a very peaceful spot as it’s hidden away and only reachable on foot, so other than local dog walkers, there are few visitors.

That looks really beautiful and peaceful. Thank you for sharing 😊
What a wonderful carpet of bluebells Threecats. Thank you for sharing. Xxx💕
What a beautiful place. You are lucky to have that nearby.
I am very lucky CD, particularly as I can’t walk so far these days.
It looks to be quite level. I used to visit a bluebell wood quite near to where I live but it is on a hillside so beyond me now. I hope that you will be able to enjoy yours for many years to come x
I’m sorry to hear that CD. There is a hilly bit as well but fortunately I don’t have to attempt that if I don’t feel up to it.
Thank you and thank you for sharing the photograph. I have looked at it several times today xx
How marvellous Three cats to have this amount of wonder & peace nearby. It must be so uplifting, thank you for sharing it. P×
Gorgeous! It’s really beautiful 🤩
I have never forgotten my first visit to a bluebell wood with my parents. It was magical! I will never forget the heady smell, the calm and wonder. Although I have visited many more since then it was that first visit that has remained a precious memory. Thank you for your lovely photo which took me back to that special day long ago.X
Beautiful photo thank you so much for sharing. Have a lovely day and take care 😊 Bernadette and Jack 🐕 xxxxxx 🌻🌻
I saw some of these in the park and thought I had never seen anything so very beautiful. Like your photo, a carpet of bluebells, so pretty. I really love this picture. Thank you for sharing. xx
So magical and serene! We have similar hidden from sight woodland space. We’ve battled developers for3 years..last week they withdrew their planning application - hooray! Such beauty is so important for our physical and mental health. Especially early morning when the birds start their song. Fantastic photo.
I'm a town boy and so I've never had a memory of a bluebell wood, but you have given me one now! It will be my dreamscape, a place where I can rest.Thankyou so much for posting.
Thanks for such lovely peaceful photo. Haven’t seen bluebell wood for years. Hope you can enjoy it for years to come. Have bluebells in my garden but not the wild variety with slightly bent head. Best regards Jean xx
You’re welcome Jean and thank you😊 I think all bluebells are beautiful, whether native or not and I’m sure they enhance your lovely garden. I hope you and Morrison are well , my three girls send their best wishes to him and said he looks a very handsome chap😸🐈⬛🐈⬛🐈⬛ xx
This looks beautiful and is so uplifting, you are right we need to keep our ancient woodlands. I will look at this properly tomorrow when my eyes have settled , thank you for sharing x
You’re welcome Izb1. I’m sorry about your eye problems and hope they settle soon x
Had a Iridotomy today ( laser holes put into my eyes) and think it is more the drops than the procedure, am sure it will be better tomorrow , thank you x
Good morning Irene. I see you had your laser treatment yesterday. I do hope it went well and not too uncomfortable and it has been successful, also that your eye has settled today. Take care xxx
Thank you HollyBoyd. The first eye they did was ok but the other eye actually hurt, luckily they only gave me 5 shots of the laser so it wasnt too bad and they put so many drops in, I am not surprised my sight was cloudy yesterday but everything seems to have settled down today and feels fine. Fingers crossed I wont have to have it re done and all will be well on my check up x
I'm glad I came across this Irene, I've been wondering how you and your eyes were. It's a relief to know that all seems to be well and it must be a relief for you too. I hope the treatment is a success. Do let us know. Did you get any further with blood tests for GCA?
Sending love and a hug, Carole xxx
Thank you Carole, I must admit to being petrified of having this done but pleased to say I behaved myself lol and the doctor was so lovely. My bloods were normal but I have an appointment on 13th with the rheumy doctor so will discuss with her then. The laser man yesterday agreed that something was wrong but was in addition to the narrow angle problem that is affecting the drainage and could be GCA, its a waiting game but am determined to get to the bottom of it all. I will put a post up when I know what it is. Thank you for your support, it means alot x
These woods are so magical. I miss being able to see them now, so the photo brings many lovely memories of bluebell woods. Thank you for sharing, best wishes xxx😊
That is gorgeous. I must get to my local wood soon. xxx
Wow! What a beautiful scene. Thanks for posting.
Gorgeous thank you so much for posting
My pleasure Cloudancer. Btw, love your username 😊
How lovely. Beautiful sight each morning 😊
Beautiful. There’s a wood not too far from where I live and like your photo it’s carpeted in bluebells and anemones. They were in flower when we passed in the car a couple of days ago. It brings back memories of when I was a child. I would have a seat on the back of my Fathers bicycle. Mum would have her bike and my two Sisters also had bicycles. We would walk into the woods and pick bunches of bluebells anemones primroses and violets. We would take them home and put them in water. The trouble was the anemones were dying as soon as you picked them. We had beautiful walks there and brought back dead wood for the fire. You never see people walking in there any more which is a shame.
The photo has certainly triggered a lot of memories in folk, Mavary. As you say, it’s a shame more people don’t walk in these woods much these days, although I must confess, from my own selfish standpoint I’m rather glad they don’t!
Did you see morning live today? They did an article on a bluebell wood that was being eaten by a muntjac, it looked just like your picture x
I didn’t see that. There are deer in the wood but fortunately not muntjac!
