Spring reaches Foxley Wood

A couple of weeks ago we took a stroll through Foxley Wood in the middle of the Norfolk countryside, North of Dereham, it near Bawdeswell. It's quite a sweet little drive down the country lanes to get there and made for a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

We last visited in late summer  it was a haven for wildlife with butterflies galore so this time I was unsure what to expect. The terrain was a little soft underfoot initially, which I hadn't banked on but not enough to spoil my boots and there didn't seem to be all that much to see. However, after following the signs for the bluebell trail we soon found ourselves surrounded by millions of bluebells which left me unable to believe my eyes! I've never seen so many in my life. I filmed a short video (one minute or so!) to show you the 360 to help you get the scale.

While we were there I got in some outfit pictures in the beautiful surroundings too.

Is there such thing as bluebell overload? I think not.
