Bluebells again - Felley Priory

Another day, another outing to see bluebells :)
I don't really think many words are necessary, really, other than to say these were in the wonderful bluebell wood at Felley Priory, Nottinghamshire. Although the gardens there are open all year round, the wood is only open to visitors for the few weeks that bluebells flower in spring.

As the admission covers both the bluebell walk and entry to the gardens, we rounded off our afternoon with a stroll among the topiary and flower beds. For a place that's barely a mile from a busy motorway, it's amazingly quiet and peaceful. Last year was my first ever visit, despite living nearby for many years, and I intended going b ack when the roses and herbaceous borders were in flower, but never got round to it. This year I will!
