Wildwood in May
May is the most beautiful time of the year, the dawn chorus wakes us earlier and earlier, and this year so far the weather has been kind to us. The birds have all found suitable nesting places and are busy hatching their babies or feeding hungry young beaks with worms caterpillars and what ever else they can find. The spring blossom and flowers are bursting out and this is why I want to take you for a walk in the Wildwood. You may think it strange to have apple blossom in the woods but this is the first tree you see, we hare hoping
to get a good crop this year. We follow the path and here the bluebells unfold before you, they are as far as the eye can see and the fragrance hits you the light floral of the bluebells along with the sweet mossy smell of the woodland floor. There many species of wild flowers here for all to see and
At there best just now are the wild orchids, they are in a clearing which
You must watch where you walk in the Wildwood for fear of crushing a delicate flower or plant, if you are very quiet and still you may spot one of these. I will bring you more news of the Wildwood as the seasons change, I hope you have enjoyed your walk with me.
