Bluebells and Arums

May means trips to WestWoods for the famous display of bluebells. It really is a natural wonder though; to see nothing but an ongoing carpet of blue-ness rolling on beneath the trees as far as one can see. Amazing. Walking through the woods around Barrow Common today though I was struck by how they play host to a similar spectacle: Wild Garlic or Ramsons. In just the same way, the forest floor there is just a mass of white flowers everywhere. Just as amazing as the bluebells.

I’ve scaled these images at 100% so apologies if you are viewing on a smaller screen as they probably wont fit (but honestly, they wouldn’t look that great small anyway).

The Arums are back, though I can’t seem to find any larger ones that haven’t been eaten. The quest continues.

For Aaron, English Woodland Springtime (enjoy):

And finally; not a great picture but I just wanted a shot of nothing but ramson flowers:
