Walking in the Woods

Some evenings when my husband comes home from work we like to go for a walk in the woods.  I love the lichen that clings to some branches
and fungi growing on others that have fallen during storms.
The bluebells are the main flower in bloom this month.

Cowslips are appearing in the grass verges.

This is the ancient footpath that we often walk along, bordered by giant oaks.
Evening in the woods and the anemones close their petals for the night.
Yesterday was such a lovely sunny day that I went for a walk amongst the bluebells and enjoyed listening to the birdsong.  There were butterflies dancing together between the trees and bees making the most of the glut of pollen.  I also spotted many ladybirds on the bluebells and the occasional white bluebell.
