A proper woodland photo with Bluebells, great.

I would have named this photo, The Broken Fence

Desirous of a tree's dappled shade and rotted leaves, are the bluebells. Can't help feeling that Glead could get away with being pronounced Glad, instead … there's something Welsh about it all.

I have a film called The Family Way in which Ezra, played by John Mills, remembers his boyhood friend saying to him, "You can't beat Nature for beauty, Ezra", and that came straight into my mind as I opened photo-a-day this morning. Beautiful.

Not seen many Bluebells this year, I must be going to the wrong places! I have a few English Bluebells in the garden though. A nice rustic scene -
' Blubells by a Babbling Brook'... Sounds better Mick..:o)

Try Borsdane Woods Veronica, it's always full of Spring flowers, and a great walk too.

Yes Garry,it's packed with them,was on path near there today.

Great news Elizabeth, hope you enjoyed it.

It's a bit too far for me Garry, I have never been to Borsdane Woods even though we are on the boundary. There's lots of other wild flowers in Hall Lee Bank where I go and usually its crammed with Bluebells - but not this year...

I think everyone on WW can recognise the quality of a Dave Oy.

Mick, Thanks for the many videos of Wigan you post online. They are a godsend for xpats like me.

Hall Lee Bank in Westhoughton, lovely, you know there are some beautiful parks and woodlands for us the visit when this lockdown is over.
