Sounds like a lovely Sunday! I've been taking pics of wild garlic and bluebells this week, we must be a bit ahead of you here....the garlic is divine isn't it!

Dreamy pictures - ours is indeed a 'green and pleasant land'! :-)

Bolton Abbey looks like such a picturesque place. When we next go to Yorkshire I'm going to have to add it to my itinerary…I've been lusting after going for such a long time.

down south in surrey our bluebells are out. it is beautiful!


I always love the bluebell season. One good thing about our bad weather - the bluebell season hasn't passed me by. Maybe this week we will take a trip to our local bluebell woods !! Beautiful photos, as always. Sarah

You were lucky that it wasn't raining! It has rained all day today in Cardiff! Your pictures have really brightened my day thank you x


The wild garlic reminds me of a trip to Janet's Foss in Malham, the pathway leading through the wood up to the falls is surrounded by it, it's beautiful, loved the fairy tree with the pennies too! I'm sure you have no doubt been there! Lovely blog :)


Well Lucy, after Yarndale The Cavendish will be our second priority in September. Hope we can walk from Bolton Abbey CC site as it looks like we will have a lot of calories to walk off. Scrumptious!

All picture postcard worthy!Our violets are spent now,and the roses are starting to bloom.We enjoyed a sunny sunday as well,so nice as you say to spend it with family.

Sara Jenkins

Looks and sounds lovely. :)
The bluebells here are in flower but I can't seem to
get a photo which does them justice.
A rare quiet, sport free Sunday here, spent at home
all together.
Have a good week ahead. x


Oooohhh, Lucy.... I love, love, loooooooooooove your landscapes.... a lovely trees....


I was at Bolton Abbey on Friday! We couldn't spend to much time there, but it is a really beautiful place where I will go again as soon as I can with much more time :)
Nice pics by the way

Lovely pics and what a walk. Our violets are just starting to flower, although we've had little rain so far this year in Oz. I picked some a few weeks ago. My bluebells aren't up yet, but muscari and friesias are, and a few daffodils are just poking through.

Rachael Iddon

Oooh, been amongst the wild garlic myself this weekend. Looks lovely. I've just booked a pitch at Strid Wood Caravan Club park for the Yarndale Weekend. Hope it's a good choice.


Beautiful pictures of your walk, I do enjoy reading your out and about posts. The bluebells are so late this year. I saw a few today, just coming out at the woodland in the grounds of a castle in our town, more on that in my next blog post. I was supposed to be off to a wheelchair accessable woodland some mile away today for my birthday adventure, but wasn't well enough to go, so maybe that was a blessing in disguise as fingers crossed by next weekend they'll be out and I be well enough.


Lovely! We did that walk last summer when we were staying in Burnsall and your pictures brought back many happy memories.


Your photos are just gorgeous, I'm from Australia and One of my dreams is to visit your part of our world... I love the little woodland areas... :)


Oh Lucy, you are so very lucky to live close to the lovely landscape around Bolton Abbey. I first read about Bolton Abbey in your blog and it inspired us to go. We absolutely love going now when we are able too. I love looking at your gorgeous photo's and reading about your lovely days. Thank you for sharing your lovely times with us all xxx


Wow things have greened up SO nicely in your neck of the woods!!


Our U.S. weather in upper Illinois often seems to mirror yours. Blooms are late here, as well. Thanks for taking us on your woodsy walk and showing us all of the lovely greens!

I wish I was one of your kids. You are making such a wonderful childhood for them!


Beautiful walk, Lucy! Your pictures always bring so much joy and happiness to me :)I'd like to climb up in the forest now..aww...we did have such walk yesterday with my husband, but that was just an alley of Indian pine trees ;)

Anna-Marie Field

Hi There, There's nothing more special than family times like these!!!And to always be remembered through your blog "scrapbook"!!! Hope you have a great week!!!


Unas imagenes preciosas. ¡Me encanta el paseo que habeis hecho con ese caminito sinuoso rodeado de verde, a mi lugares como este tambien me alimentan el alma, gracias por acercarlo. Un cariñoso saludo desde España.

We get out on Sundays too, it completes our week. Jo x
