Bluebells are Blue

We had only intended to visit Home Farm, near Huntley, and wander their bluebell woods ..

This year really has been staggering for flora and blossom

but the day was so beautiful and the bluebells in profusion, we continued through the forest - pausing at Clearwell for a lunchtime snack - to the Wye valley and Cadora and Bigswear Woods. This Woodland Trust circular walk, alongside Offas Dyke, is one of the best bluebell woodland walks in the area.

Then, being sooo close we had to drop in at Tintern for tea n cakes (well, in my case, maple syrup crepes n cream :-p  ). The perfect end to a quintessential spring day.
