Beautiful Bluebells

One of our favourite walks is to go to Otterhead Lakes and walk by the lakes and through the woodland.  We went a couple of weeks ago when my brother was here but the bluebells were not quite out so we went again today to see the beautiful carpets of flowers.

The sunlight was just shining through the emerging Beech trees with their light green leaves.

Just off the path before the bluebells were beds of wild garlic.

As we walked further down the blue of the bluebells got more intense.

Neil took my picture sitting amongst the flowers.

This is such a beautiful place, so peaceful and today there were no other people around, just the sound of the birds and the rustling leaves.

We stopped by the first lake and could see the swan still sitting on her nest and also the Heron was in the same place as we had seen it a couple of weeks ago.  I took a picture of Neil by the lake.

As we were driving from the car park up the lane we noticed that the Devon banks were also topped with bluebells.

We are so lucky to live nearby.
