Ashenbank Wood walk and discovering bluebells

On Saturday we took both dogs for a long walk in the woods, that we know as Cobham Woods. Ian used to walk in the woods as a child and we took Jack there quite a few times when he small with our other dog, Vicky. It was the perfect day for walking, not too warm and not raining (for once).  We started off at Camer Park just up the road and had a small picnic before driving over to park at the start of the trail. I had no idea that we would walk in Ashenbank and it was one of the top spots in Kent to see bluebells until I checked the Woodland Trust web site late last night. We walked for about 2 1/2 hours and I have never seen so many bluebells in one place, the smell was amazing. Here are just a few of the photos we took on our woodland walk.

Looks lovely,

Must admit to hating fields of rapeseed we have them everywhere and they are the only plant that gives me hayfever when I am close to them - the smell takes my breath away!

I used to be too but have started taking a different medication and its ok now. But it does still smell awful!

we share the same hobbies, though blogging has taken the driver's seat.

I love bluebells, in fact I love most flowers.
