Bluebells And The Birch


Another of my encounters on my walk through the local wood this morning. Along a narrow dirt path on the edge of the wood were carpets of bluebells. Passing one of my favourite trees, an established Silver Birch, I thought the sunlight was so beautiful through the trees as it illuminated hundreds of tiny bell-shaped blue petals.

  1. I can picture the woods now (from my time in the Bluebell woods not far from where I live in Sussex for 6 months). I remember being enchanted by them back in 1978 just as much as I enjoyed the small patch in our Royal Botanic Gardens here in Melbourne.
