In and out the dusty bluebells ...


On a clear day you can see Barbury Clump from the fields nearby my house. It is about 8 miles by car,  less  as the crow flies. It is a National Trust viewpoint. At the edge of the copse you can see see over the pretty town of Faringdon and down into the Thames valley. Extra lovely at the moment as it is filled with bluebells. The smell was intoxicating. We went after dinner at around 6.30 pm as the visitors had mostly gone. There wasn’t a breath of wind and the sight was magical. 

A real treat for the senses.
The photos don’t do it justice as there was blue in every direction covering all of  the woodland. 
 Back to reality with a trip to Tesco and Home Bargains in Faringdon on the return journey. At least I escaped reality for a few moments today. That is precious.


  1. Certain corners of our nearby churchyard are covered in Bluebells, as I walk by every morning I see people photographing them. Not as extensive as your natural woodland, but very nice anyway.

  2. Loved this. I would enjoy seeing this in the real. I've never seen blue bells in California, so this is a sight. Just beautiful.
