Lovely blog, thank you for sharing your walk. The bluebells weren't quite out here (Richmond, N Yorks) when I went in search of them 2 weekends ago, so I will go again today or tomorrow. Makes me look back fondly on the days my currently extremely-hard-to-live-with-almost-16-year-old son was a friendly and interested Little Person and we went on magical family walks. I definitely identified with the milk-shake plus ?? negotiations as you neared the cafe!!!


I agree about Janet's work and have visited her online shop several times. But you can't beat the real thing can you? Our garden is full of bluebells right now, along with Lily of the Valley planted alongside in some places, where the contrast is just lovely... and the smell of the latter gorgeous!


The bluebells have been wonderful this year. Loved seeing your beautiful photos and Janet's paintings. Bluebells are mostly over down here in the South east but amazingly they were flowering on sheltered sections of the coastal path in Cornwall last week.


Lovely photos Lucy. I think the Cow Parsley is stunning this year - we have a lot around here this year, but I love Bluebells as well.


As an Aussie I cannot believe that green! We don't have anything remotely that colour.

When we went to the UK and Ireland in 2005 I was stunned by the green of Ireland where we went first, it really was green. Then after Scotland we drove down to Yorkshire, I will never forget feasting my eyes in the green of your spring.

Our local bluebell patch is Perivale Wood, run by the Selborne Society, which is the second oldest nature reserve in the UK. https://greenford365.wordpress.com/2012/04/29/open-day-perivale-wood/ Love the paintings!

Lovely post and wonderful Photos! My little family and I visited the bluebells here in Suffolk not long ago and they were magical. We also know the Janet Bell Gallery well and her work. We holiday in North Wales every year and love to pootle about in Beaumaris. Do you own a Janet Bell original? They are wonderful dreamy paintings and bring back happy holiday memories for me. Have you seen her cross stitch sets? I recently bought the Beside the Seaside; Beach Huts. Here's the link http://www.janetbellgallery.com/products/beach-huts-cross-stitch-kit
Thank you for another fab post :0)x Sarah

Ah yes Bolton abbey is a beautiful place. After meeting us that day in your studio my daughter and i went straight there and saw so many bluebells !! It was truly magnificent. Thank you for sharing it with us.i would never have known of the place if not for your blog and I am so grateful. Bluebells are my favourite!! Beth.


Wow I love those paintings, and yay for Bluebells we went on a bluebell adventure a couple of weeks ago too, and I made no apologies for a very photo heavy bluebell post, you can never have too many. Have a good weekend

You're right, the light in the paintings is almost too much to look at - and yet when you do it's just blobs. Magic, I'd say. Love that mossy, leafy woodland smell, sounds like a perfect walk to me! xx


Wonderful I have been to Bolton Abbey on my last visit to Europe. I enjoy your blog I live in BC Canada. I am so happy to have found your blog and you are a great Inspiration


"How on earth does she use blobs of paint to make it look like the sun is actually shining through the trees, how does she do that magical light thing?????!!!" The same way you, Lucy, take a ball of flat, straight yarn and crochet it into something cozy, welcoming and marvellously beautiful! 🌺

Instantly homesick!!! Thanks for this lovely post Lucy! :) Bluebell time is very nostalgic for me, many walks in the woods with my Grandad as a kid. Gorgeous pics. Wonderful.


Oh the woods at this time of year are utterly gorgeous aren't they. The acid lime green is my favourite shade, and May and June are just the loveliest months in the countryside. Everything so new. It sounds like a wonderful walk. Quite amazing how little people perk up when there's a cookie at the end of the line isn't it. Those exhausted little legs are suddenly able to run again. The painting is lovely, it looks like just like a piece of the woods. How talented Janet is. Wishing you and yours a good weekend Lucy. CJ xx

Ever the traveler

Thank you thank you thank for sharing these photos! xox from Michigan USA, where it's not quite (but almost) this green yet!

Sarah Green

Once again, you have captured my imagination and have taken me along on your adventure thru Bluebell Forrest. :) Thank you, your pictures and your writing help lift my spirits and set my imagination free to travel on trails I can only dream of walking. What a lovely lovely way to be released!!!
What fun, what laughter from the fairies and little hobbits all around............. Thank you so much!!
