Beautiful Bluebells

Today we visited Otterford Lakes to see the bluebells in full bloom.  As we walked through the woods, you could see the shades of blue on the ground below the dappled trees.


As we walked further down hill we could see the swans on the lake.


We walked past the bridge over the lake and up to the higher meadow where there was an absolute carpet of bluebells, really lovely.


I took some views of the lake as we walked back down.


Some white narcissus were still blooming.


The pink Campion flowers were coming out too.

Snowdrops at Otterford Lakes

As it was such a lovely sunny day today, when our B&B guests had gone and we had the first lot of washing on, we went for a walk to Otterford Lakes.  It’s not far from us, just up through Bishopswood a couple of miles.  We walked down to the first lake and the swans were just gliding over the still water.


As we stood and watched them they came nearer to us and I was able to take this close up.


We took the lower path past the waterfall.


As we walked along the stream the sunlight was glinting on the water.


We followed the path along the stream until we came to the second lake.


As we walked back we were able to the see the snowdrops much better.  There were carpets of them in the woods.


They looked so lovely in the sunshine, really made us feel like Spring is on its way.


When we got home I noticed some of our Spring bulbs are bursting into life.  The crocus in the half moon baskets by the front door have come out.


And the very first of the Tete a Tete daffs is out.


We actually sat outside to have a cuppa after lunch the sun was so glorious.  I think the B&B guests who left today were jolly lucky to have this lovely sunshine and to see the view from Lodge House so clearly, even in February.
