Bluebell Woods: Badby

Spring in England means beautiful walks through fresh green fields, along woodland paths between hedgerows rich with blossoms and flowers. Last weekend didn’t disappoint. Richard and Angela took us out to Badby woods and along the Nene Valley in rural Northamptonshire.

Bradby is a hidden part of the Cotswolds where the old woods are absolutely full of bluebells at this time of the year.  We had a walk through the overcast and occasional rain (it is Spring!).  Beech trees, sycamore, oaks and Scots pine shade thousands and thousands of flowers.  A fine place for foxes to be out wandering. Then plenty of time for us to enjoy a quiet beer in a village pub before driving home …

My camera phone has done the countryside some justice, I think. It was rather tricky light and a very basic camera so don’t expect a sharp image if you try and enlarge them.
