Bluebell Woods (again) // 29 04 2022

Bluebell Woods // 29 04 2022

It is a bank holiday weekend here in the UK, which means we get the Monday off as well as the weekend. Tradition dictates that the weather must be rainy! So as the forecast for Friday night was the only one which looks reasonable, I decided to go out to the bluebell woods again and see if the light was any better than when I went out last weekend.

And it was! I don’t feel like there were as many bluebells there overall this year, but it still looked and smelled beautiful!

I’m not sure that I posted the two days before this either, so I’ll just drop them below.

Today, we drove home! In anticipation of this, I got up at 5am and went down to Bamburgh beach for the sunrise.

Unlike yesterday when I was the only person at Dunstanburgh beach at sunrise, there were a couple of other photographers and dog walkers out.

That’s it now. All back at home and back to work on Monday.

Another afternoon spent in the garden. I’ve managed to get the juniper bush fully out, trimmed the bottom off the red robin bush (it kind of looks like a mushroom now, but it lets the light get underneath it).

I’ve moved another plant, and raked over a section. Not sure what I plan on planting in the psace I’ve made.

I did have a sneaky look under the covering where the mint was…. and around the edges there is some mint growing. Like how? There is no light!!! Grrrr
