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.👣
In this Easter week I wish you peace, happiness and relaxation.
I thought I would post some photos from my walks in parks nearby. Everything seems to be coming alive at this time of year.
The flowers and trees look so beautiful, it would be great to share them.
I’ve added a short poem based on the seasons of the apple tree.
Apple Tree Seasons
In Spring, pink apple blossom grow delicate buds
New life springs forth
In Summer, fully grown blooms take shape as apples
Warm,strong sunlight help them form
In Autumn, rosy red, sweet tasting apples
Ready to pick from the tree
In Winter, a bare tree stands out amongst
White snow, goodness going back to the roots
