We woke up to sunshine this morning and the breakfast time local weather presenter said that it would be sunny from 'the get go' so we thought we had better get going and set out for a walk.
We didn't go far just into the local woods at Hem Heath.
The sun was teasing us by popping in and out but when it did appear the light on the bright acid green leaves was so pretty.
We walked further into the wood listening to the mellifluous song of blackbirds and robins, to the gentle cooing of pigeons and the hollow 'tip tap' of woodpeckers, high in the trees.
Further and further under the green canopy of trees until we found what we were looking for
A blue haze started to appear amongst the trees - stretching way back, as far as the eye could see
Of course, May is the month of bluebells and they were here already, waiting for us to find them
There are many more to come and these woods are going to look and smell wonderful in another week. I think we were just a few days early in our search.
What a lovely month May is.
