I went to Kings Wood with the intension of getting some shots of Bluebells, ( Hyacinthoides non-scripta ) but due to the bad winter we had they seem to be a little late this year.

 

Bluebells not blooming yet

The area above is usually a mass of Bluebells but as you can see they haven't bloomed yet and probably need another week of some good sunshine.

There were a few small patches of the forest that had a few Bluebells in but these were very sparse, but as I had driven for about forty minuets to get here I was determined to get at least a few shots of what I could find, with the view to hopefully getting back here next week when I hope they will be in full bloom.

If you have never visited Kings Wood, this is a great time of year to walk around the forest, its a great walk with some lovely areas, frequented by many a dog walker and cyclist alike. Car Parking is free so when you cant think were to go why not pay it a visit.
