Beautiful Bluebells.

What a lovely way to enjoy the 1st of May. Thirteen of us (not to mention the dog) came together for a visit to Coppins Farm for a walk amongst the bluebells, and a very fine afternoon it was too. As well as its bluebells, the farm enjoys grassland, wildflower meadows, and most of its original hedgerows, making it a haven for wildlife, including butterflies and insects.

The weather was dry and mild, but we worked up a tiny bit of a sweat clambering over the occasional fallen tree trunk. The bluebells were stunning, just as we’d hoped, and between us we probably took several hundred photographs!

It’s difficult to do justice to the colour – waves of hazy purple and blue, washing down the hill.

We finished our walk with a quick look at the Showman’s wagons, and the Victorian railway carriage, available as holiday accommodation at the farm – ideal as a base for exploring and walking in the area!

We are planning another visit to the farm to see the wildflowers some time in June, so watch this space for details. Thanks to everyone who came along!
