Last Of The Bluebells
No boots today so we went for a walk to the blubell woods of Marbury again but not many left now. The window for seeing them is very small - about two weeks. A bit sad to see them faded and droopy. Lots of other flowers in bloom though like the pungeant wild garlic and rhodedendrons. We had a small piece of stake bread to feed the occasional cheeky robin and duck family - a few ducklings on the Mere with a very alert looking Mummy duck. The sun stayed out most of the time though it wasa bit nippy under the canopy of the trees. The smell of the rotting wood and ferns etc. was quite amazing.
Stopped off on the way back to get Wilf some snack bars to chew and some muesli.
