Bluebells always create a wonderful vista and here at Oxlip wood the under storey becomes a vibrant carpet of blue at this time of year.

The first sightings of blue happened not long into April, but every day their presence became more apparent.

It’s interesting that despite a deer presence within the wood the Bluebells seem to be mostly left alone.

You would imagine that Bluebells would have a fragrance? Some visitors to the wood have commented they can smell them, but I think it’s not the Bluebells their noses detect. If there was a fragrance it would be overpowering, given the density of the flowers!

The vibrancy of blue contrasts beautifully with the bare trees just coming into leaf and the brown branches of the hazel trees.

On various visits to Oxlip wood over the past few weeks we’ve thought the Bluebells were ‘at their best’. However, the blue just gets more and more vibrant.

To be able to appreciate such scenes first hand is food for the soul.
