The Season of Quick Change……

_DOI4256qqq

Late evening and a walk in the woods is a great way to finish another spring day… a day where the  weather swung from sunshine to rain and back again and again and again.

Bluebells still carpet large areas, but sadly time is not on their side and the foliage is once again falling back…soon they will vanish till next Spring.  But on the Pines there is new growth that will continue throughout the summer.

It is though a spring milestone as the Bluebells decline.  They are though a tenacious wild flower.  Given the chance they multiply in numbers each year.  Woodland floors become blue carpets…..but Bluebells do fight for every bit of space and can be found on the roughest of ground and hiding in the roots of trees…

Not that all Bluebells are Blue……  they may not be traditional, but I do love the occasional clump of “White” Bluebells

Makes a change….but just like their Blue cousins,  they are now starting to disappear….

Its for You!

Well, if the call was for you, a boat may well be the best approach to this Phone Box.

Hiding beneath a Weeping Willow, this now defunct traditional Red Phone Box has been pressed into service as a Canal side Garden feature.  What is they say “waste not want not”….
