A Sunny Day In The Woods

What a difference a day makes and what a change in the weather.  
Beautiful today. Sun shining, blue sky and best of all very warm.  Yesterday it was raining, hailing and cold. 
So I decided to take myself off to the woods to photograph some bluebells. 
There weren't as many as I had hoped but it was still lovely. 






 It was so peaceful in the woods, between the beautiful birdsong, the warm sunshine and the fact that there was hardly another soul there. 

Peace, perfect peace :) 

It was such a pleasure to be there taking lots of pictures - can you tell I really enjoyed myself.
Yes, I'm afraid I did take rather a lot - that's something for you to look forward to :))

How lovely to see the bluebells in the woods... it's my favourite time to visit Britain! Bluebells and primroses and daffodils remind me of my childhood in England... ah! Sweet memories!
I love the close up shot of that astonishing bluebell colour on your last image!
Have a sunny weekend!

Your day sounds heavenly! All those blooms in the forest are stunning! What beautiful images you captured :)

Thanks so much for your kindness at my place...even though my kids didn't really understand what was happening, I think they sensed that all was not how it was supposed to be on someone's birthday, so they did their best to *continually* wish me happy birthday, sing all the renditions of birthday songs they know in 2 different languages...and my Munchkin worked really hard to surprise me with a birthday card <3. I have a feeling that when they get a bit older, they won't let dad forget... ;)

Oh, Ellie...I hope people enlarged these. They are wonderful when opened up big. The 5th and 6th are extra special I think.
