Thursford Wood in early springThursday, March 19, 2015
Woodland to me is a magical environment. As a child I would read about enchanted forests with mysterious characters living within, the faraway tree and the adventures that took place there. Now I'm all grown up maybe I ought to be past all that but I still see everything through young eyes, the sunlight dapples all around which to me is every kind of magic.
Almost three weeks ago now, the snowdrops were in full bloom whilst the bluebells and daffodils were priming themselves for full spring at Thursford Wood. This patch of ancient woodland was fascinating; full of old oak trees and thick undergrowth. We had the lace to ourselves until we came to leave, there was just the sound of the occasional car on the main road (sadly rather close by) and the birds.
I hope you enjoyed this taste of the woodland.
