It’s #WalkThisMay month and I have been trying out some different walking routes. It’s often on these paths you find the most interesting fauna and flora.
I came across beautiful carpets of bluebells during one of my woodland walks.
Their deep blue colour is a breathtaking sight stretching out beneath the slowly unfolding woodland canopy.
Bluebells flower from the middle of April to the end of May; producing nectar early in the season.
The bluebells nectar provides an important source of food for bees,🐝butterflies,🦋and other insects.🕷🦟
The bluebell is mainly found in Britain and Western Europe.
Areas of woodland where bluebells grow as wildflowers are often likely to have been in existence for hundreds of years and are categorised as ancient woodland.
If your interested in exploring your local area have a look at my page on walking for more information and ideas.👣
On a recent trip to Cambridge, England; I discovered some quaint streets and alleyways on my way to Kings College.
What can I tell you about Cambridge?
It’s on the tourist map as one of the most visited places in Britain.
It’s famous for its University Kings College, Chapel and Choir. On Christmas Eve every year a service of Nine lessons and Carols is broadcast.
The River Cam runs through Cambridge.
Students earn some extra cash by hiring out small boats called “punts”and punting visitors along the river.
On a summers day the river is a colourful mass of punts and people.
Walking into the town centre through “the backs” by the river.
A variety of Spring flowers cover the banks. First with snow drops, then daffodils and bluebells.
As I reach the city centre Gothic architecture surrounds me. It’s a great place to visit on foot.
As it’s #WalkThisMay month it’s a great incentive to get out and about exploring new places.
