Bluebell time is the best time! We get them in our garden at home - it's put me off planting anything else there - I don't want to sacrifice those magical few weeks of the year! xx


Thank you for putting Janet's beautiful pictures on your blog. Through the link to her website I have discovered she painted a lovely picture that was hanging in the holiday cottage we stayed in over Easter that I admired all week. Now I know which Cornish town the picture is of and where I can get a print of it!


Crack up! Janet Bell!
I visited the RNLI lifeboat in Hastings mid 2014.
I saw her calendar for 2015 and although it was a few months away ,
I just HAD to have the calendar.
You have just put a lot of dots together for me.
Haha! Great.
Oh, by the way, your blog is the only one I look at regularly, others have
slipped by , changed , lost interest, but yours is FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC!!!
thank YOU!!!!. Love Lucy. Xxxxx


I do love bluebell time! Thank you for a lovely colourful post!


Beautiful. I haven't seen any bluebells yet this year but I have so been enjoying the (very ordinary and yet incredibly pretty) combo of cow parsley and buttercups! They suddenly struck me for the first time this year. Were they even there before?!!


I love bluebells - I have planted some
bulbs, from my parents' garden in the UK, in our Alpine garden and have 2 bluebells this year!! Am hoping they will proliferate to form the blue carpet in your photos and Janet's paintings! Have looked at her site and am sorely tempted to buy myself a print! Beautiful light. Thanks for telling us about her.


The bluebells are glorious aren't they - such a vivid colour! I'm a little sad as they're beginning to fade an look stringy in my local woods - but lots of other things are starting to bloom in their place.


I did that same walk a few weeks ago and have done another nice one today through Hardcastle Craggs near Hebden Bridge where the bluebells and wild garlic were out in force.


There is something very magical about bluebell woods isn't there? That uplifting combination of blue and green, and the play of light and shade makes for a wonderful spring experience. Your photos are gorgeous - I hope you all enjoyed your treats afterwards :)

Beatiful paintings!!


Lucy, thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures. You really should think about sharing them with Faerie Magazine because most of these forest pictures look like somewhere the faeries would live. A lot of the pictures that I see in Faerie Magazine make me think of your pictures. Have a lovely blessed week!


Such a lovely views, so inspiring. Beautifull paintings indeed. Thank you for this dive into nature.

Just beautiful, Lucy. The sights are just glorious!

Thank you for the pictures. I live in America but was born in Bedfordshire. My 94 year old father who lives with me is from Yorkshire. Your pictures bring back many happy memories for him of places he went when he was young. He is now unable to get out but loves to look through your lovely pictures. I love to look through your crochet patterns. I now have many skeins of stylecraft yarn in lovely colors to make many blankets. Thank you for the enjoyment you bring to us.

Robin Summers

Such lovely pictures. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful walk with us. Your pictures make me feel like am right there with you and the peeps. Janet's paintings are awesome. I really loved this post!!


Nancy posted the exact same thoughts I had reading this post. You too, Lucy, paint wonderful pictures, but you use yarn and words rather than paint, and you very generously share them with us. My "wildflower meadow" as I call it, although it's only about 3m square, is full of bluebells this year, and there are a few poppies about to burst. Looking good and lifts my spirits every time I look at it. The healing power of nature is strong!


Thank you for letting us know about Janet Bell's work. Her paintngs look really beautiful!
Have a happy , relaxing , family weekend.

Penny Rongo

Thank you so much for taking us along with you through the Bluebell Forest and letting us experience through your eyes the wonder of spring in England. The renewel of life with all it's glorious colors that go along with the newness of the bluebells and woods are beautiful.
Janet's paintings are lovely. The lady has a lot of talent.


Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures. I can see why you go for that walk in a slow fashion!

Anne Tisell

You have transformed a very grey and dismal almost winters day here in Australia,merci beaucoup,lovely lady!

Denise Marshall

Hi Lucy, Thank you so much for taking me on your bluebell walk. I adore bluebells and all the beautiful greens of spring, it's all so breathtaking at this time of year. I'm sure I might have spotted a fairy or two in those lovely photos of yours.
I had a look at Janet's paintings too, they are wonderful. Maybe I'll treat myself to a print next birthday.


Thank you for sharing a beautiful walk with nature. The bluebells are beautiful! And Janet, oh my....
My In-Laws live in Texas, USA and the bluebells are lovely there too. What a wonderful way to start my weekend.
