Mini walk into the Forest of Dean this morning.

I think we were too late for the blue carpet of bluebells ,there were only sparse areas amidst the beautiful trees.
The following photos are a little samey..tried to show the dappled light amongst the foliage. The first photo is somebody’s natural stone garden wall covered with moss.

Beautiful photo's Julia, I love the way you've caught the shadows as the sunshine is filtering through the trees, the moss on the wall is the sort of thing that would have caught my eye as well....

Wonderful photos...this time of year and in such places I can close my eyes and find that the smells are as pleasant as the sights.

Thank you LS,Stera and Janey.I agree Stera...could be any wood...it's the dappled light which gives you that feeling.

I love that dappled light Julia! This year we managed a Bluebell Forest walk ourselves, in Dorset. It was absolutely magical. Scott had never been in a bluebell woodland before and he found it quite wonderful. :)
