As many know I work over in Swindon, a friend and work colleague in a conversation at work said he had gone to a Bluebell wood in Swindon and it was really pretty and the best he had seen it
Well always up for a photo opportunity so I asked where it was – its called Hagbourne Copse and it is just off the Swindon junction of the M4 by a Holiday Inn Hotel. So off I went after work, and after warning my lady I would be a bit late home, it’s a 2 hr drive from work to get home so a side trip will make it a late night, to see ‘some’ Bluebells.
Well I found it easy enough and while I have seen what are often described as Bluebell woods before I was sort of bowled over with this one. I have honestly never in all my life seen so many Bluebells in one wood. I was really happy to note they are all British Bluebells – the native variety and not the Spanish invaders.
See for your self - it was like this no matter where you were in of the woods.
I make no apology for the number of pictures of Bluebells ! it was stunning and the fragrance was fantastic, normally you can't really smell Bluebells but with this many and a warm evening Wow you really could smell them.
