Bluebell season is one of my favourite times of year. There’s something really magical about walking through the woods surrounded by a carpet of purple. We’re lucky in Bucks to be surrounded by some amazing bluebell woods. They are normally in bloom from around late April through to May. As well as some of the more popular places to find bluebells in Buckinghamshire I’ve also included some hidden gems that I’ve discovered which are much quieter.
Is it just me or does everywhere seem extra muddy this year? With everything closed and restrictions in place we have been embracing the mud and getting stuck into our daily walks. The bonus is that Ashley, like most toddlers, absolutely loves the mud, the muddier the better! She’s far more likely to walk on our walks (rather than demand to be carried) if there’s mud to jump in. So I’ve put together a list of everything we use on our walks to stay warm, protected from the mud and to make our lives easier.
Sometimes it takes a lockdown to make us slow down and appreciate the local walks that surround us. If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know I love to fit in loads of activities every week! I’m also quite happy driving up to an hour to get there, so we end up here there and everywhere. As the tier 4 guidance is to stay local we’ve been having lazier mornings and getting out for a walk or trip to the park in the afternoon. Today we went to Hodgemoor Woods which is between Amersham, Chalfont St Giles and Seer Green.
