We have had beautifully warm spring weather here this week and everything is growing. After work yesterday I wandered to the woodland, an oasis of calm after a busy day.
It was lovely to see that the spring sunshine had brought out the first few bluebells, just a sprinkling of blue amongst the green leaves.
The woodland floor is now covered with fresh growth,
and the first shoots of bracken.
Some of the trees are now starting to come into leaf but in April the sun still reaches into the woodland producing soft shadows across the path.
