First of all we came across thousands of wood anemones, and this was where I started my extreme lying down. I am using a phrase introduced to me and Meg by my niece. For those of you who aren't familiar with the pastime, it is where you lie down with you camera to get a real close up, but show the surroundings out of focus (depth of field comes into it somewhere! - Thanks Faith, was struggling to find the words!). I'd better show you some of the pictures.
Next we saw dog-violets.
We saw some places where there were blue bells coming but not out yet, so I took a photo of some new beech leaves
Finally we found some bluebells that were out.
