Bluebells

I wandered through King's Wood, hoping for bluebells, but I stumbled across:

Shiny green tiger beetles mating, flying, still hooked together.

A mass of ants, swarms of ants so great I could no longer see the ground. (I am still paranoid they are crawling on me, every time I think about them.)

Bright orange nectria cinnabarina, which looked like sweets on a log.

A peacock butterfly, fluttering before me.

The bluebells were not quite yet in full bloom and I was disappointed about being too early. My mum and I started to admit that we were slightly lost. She had sat down to have a smoke and I had walked further up the hill to see what was at the top (a field), but then to the left, I noticed the beautiful expanse of purple bluebells, and inhaled the scent. We found a small path through them and it was then that I felt a rush of wonder and could not stop saying "wow".

We continued back down the hill and came across a sign that said "Super Kingdom" and sculptures like houses or temples on the trees, and we realised that they were also bird houses.

Lovely.
My Bluebells are white

In previous years I have seen a few white ones at King's Wood, but I suspect they are just not out there yet, but will be soon.

it's hard to get a good photo of bluebells and that looks like a good one
