When you go down to the wood today be sure of a big surprise.......well I was. Although its only a tiny space and not really a wood, hence the name copse, there were a few surprises. The wildflower, red campion, has come into bloom and is smothered in little pink flowers. The ferns have suddenly sprung up all over the place, and the funny shapes I find really fascinating. The native bluebells are just getting ready to open. All in all it was a pleasant surprise. I put some bark down along the pathway, I try to do this once a year. I don't do much to this area, this part really is for nature......you can't get in to the wooded area it is now so overgrown but it is full of wildlife.
The final photograph was taken as I walked back across the grass to go into the house. I managed to get the grass cut today. Rain forecast again tomorrow, can't complain because we have had two lovely days.
