I stayed with my gorgeous friend Lizzie at the weekend in Wales. Today we explored the breathtaking broadleaved woodland called Coed-y-wenallt near Cardiff. It was carpeted in bluebell leaves and ramson leaves. Not one bit of ground wasn't bursting with green! Well, except that bit in the picture...
I nearly wet myself in excitment when I saw my first flowering Bluebells! Lizzie was practicing her navigating - luckily - making sure we got places, while I gawped, photographed flora and fell over... often.
(you'll probably have to click the picture to see the flowers!)
Well, if I hadn't already wee'd myself, I would have done when I came across theses little beauty's! Wind flowers. *sigh*
There were more of those little Scarlet elf caps too (Rowan - After finding them today in Wales I looked them up and they are common in damp bits of deciduous woodland on decaying branches. :) ). The branch these were on was really long and they were budding out all along it. It's so special to see bright red at this time of the year. Really tickles the eye.
Here's a basket...
It's a fruit and veg' type basket, sort of thing.
I love basket bums. Always have, always will.
Happy, gloriously warm (but not too warm!), springday to everybody!
