... in search of bluebells

We are blessed with beautiful rural places in our lovely Shire & we love nothing more than exploring them in various seasons.

Our choice was the lovely woods above Ironbridge; the bridge has stood since 1779 as the first Ironbridge ever constructed in the world when local engineers discovered how to cast iron to make structures strong enough to be used and that sparked the legendary Industrial Revolution that spread worldwide ..

The bluebells are just coming out in the woods but the heavy rain means that they are just not as bountiful as some years. Never the less, we set out on a dull Spring day to find some & to just enjoy the fresh air, & what fresh air it was.....

It is humbling to walk in the same woods that have been used for centuries; I wonder what tales these woods could tell ....

The bluebells were there but not in great numbers but a good morning was had ....
Take care, enjoy nature and visit again soon
