The woodlands covers a large area which leads down to a lake. It was a carpet of blue, and the perfume was fantastic.
|Ferns are beginning to unfurl.|
We had hoped that we might see Red Squirrels as we have in the past, this area has a good population of them, but we failed on this occasion. The only sound was that of bird song and the fresh green leafs rustling in a light breeze. It was a lovely afternoons trip, people clearly respect this woodland, they keep to the forest pathways, they do not pick the flowers and leave no litter behind them. Everyone we met was armed with a camera.
|One of our lemons, so juicy and sweet.|

|The first Papaver.|
|A double flowered Campion.|
|Hardy Geranium, Mourning Widow.|
|An Alpine Aquilegia.|
|Calendula, this has been blooming outside all winter.|
