‘If you go down to the woods today you’re sure to be in for a surprise….’

Spring in the UK has a beautiful rhythm, the fluffy blossoms from cherry trees, colourful daffodils and crocus emerge to banish the grey, a happy reminder that we’re a step away from winter and closer to summer.

However May is definitely a transitional month, not quite spring nor summer, and marked by a signature plant, the bluebell.

They create the most glorious sea of purple, under a woodland canopy, a site to behold.

What these purple, delicate, bel shaped flowers lack in size, they certainly make up for in numbers and impact.

The charm of this landscape is the unpredictability and the haphazard nature; the carpet of blue is randomly punctuated by unfolding ferns, which blend seamlessly into the canopy foliage.
