21st April 2014
With the bank holiday weekend almost over there was just time to go for a walk at Ashwellthorpe Lower Wood to look at the Bluebells. Our walk was sped up when we found out that the car park gets locked at 5pm, giving us just over an hour to get round. We headed for the far corner of the wood where the biggest concentration of Bluebells grow, and were rewarded with a lovely carpet of flowers. In addition to the Bluebells we also saw a number of Early Purple Orchids, Yellow Archangel, Wood Anemone, Wild Garlic and Sanicle.
