Discovering the Beauty of Wildflowers in The Bluebell Wood

Updated on March 25, 2013

The Cuckoo's Song

At last, this morning I heard the long awaited call of the cuckoo, now we know it is officially spring!

Although I look forward to hearing this bird’s beautiful song, I have never actually seen a cuckoo. Cuckoo’s aren’t visitors to gardens they are usually found in woods and then are heard and not seen!

Their name is from the two notes that the male bird sings and sound like the word “cu - ckoo” Their song is crisp and loud, the “cu - ckoo” carries clearly through the quiet of the countryside air. I always stop whatever I am doing just to give this beautiful sound my full attention.

A Wet Drought!

Today, not only do we have confirmation that spring has arrived from the cuckoo, but the weather is looking promising and we should have some sunshine.

After the glorious month of March, it was announced at the beginning of April that England was officially having a drought.

At the beginning of May, the drought was officially ended! It was probably the shortest and wettest drought ever!

A Walk in the Bluebell Woods

During our walk back in March along The Daffodil Way, we found The Queenswalk woods in Dymock, the countryside is beautiful here and we decided this is where we would walk today.

This is a circular walk along a forest trail of about 3 miles and this time of year the woods are a carpet of bluebells.

A Beautiful Forest Trail

Some of this trail is a wide track and other parts are small and narrow, after all the rain we had in April we are trudging through mud in places!

At the moment the sun is shining and we are enjoying every moment after having weeks of dull, miserable and wet weather.

Wildflowers

I enjoy walking somewhere different, as there are always new things to discover.

Initially I was preoccupied with taking photos of the bluebells, but soon began to notice a lot of different wildflowers.

I particularly liked this one - a ‘Yellow Archangel’ and as I crouched down in the mud to photograph it I could hear voices.

In the past I use to feel embarrassed about people seeing me taking photos. Especially while trying for a great angle or particular light and I was in a precarious, weird or frightening position! Sometimes I just did not have had the confidence to start taking photos if I knew people were watching me. Now I have thrown all caution to the wind and realise how silly that was, I enjoy photography and it’s all about having the confidence to capture the photo that you're after.

So as the people approached, I remained down in the mud and as they walked past they shouted a cheery ‘hello’ and asked if I’d managed to get a good picture!

The Yellow Archangel is a quintessential beautiful wild flower of the English woodlands and the little bug stood on the top looks so proud as though he is shouting ‘This is my domain!’

As we returned to the car it started raining!!

      What incredible photos you take! The Yellow Archangel may be shouting ‘This is my domain!’, but I think he'd better watch out because you are master of that domain!

      We have no cuckoos here (except for clocks of course) so can only imagine how it must be to hear them in the spring. Our spring harbinger is the humming bird coming back. P.S. The video is incredible. (If you notice me using and reusing the word 'incredible' it is because your works is so breathtaking.)

      Voted up, awesome, beautiful and interesting!

      Lesley, What an amazing, attractive, awesome audio-visual foray amongst the wildlife of Bluebell Wood! In particular, I really enjoy the opening video introduction to everything, in b&w to show texture and color to show gloriously living colors! Also, I like the concluding photo with the quote illustrating two of the many reasons for loving trees.

      Everything is excellent, as usual, but in particular it's so lyrical and upbeat the way you convey the clean clearness of white clouds and petals.

      Up + UFABI of course.

      Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing and with best wishes always to you, Nick and your families, Derdriu

      P.S. Me too, I love bluebells. In fact, they're part of the lawn's charmingly picturesque natural ground cover here out in the boondocks, along with wild strawberries and violets as well as moss and wild onion!

      That Archangel flower with the bug on top was great. Well worth getting down in the mud to capture such a sight! Now you and the rest of us can enjoy it for a long time to come.

      Hi Peggy, I enjoyed producing the video, I used the software I use for my business - but there is a 'movie maker' within 'windows' that is easy to use that you may want to try.

      It's great to have the ability to upload video on hubpages now and it's quite straightforward, give me a shout if I can help in any way.

      Lesley, Finally I've seen a movie by Movie Master! Now, I just have to find an Academy Award nomination form for Best Live Action Short Film.

      There is something about bluebells that is so very, very enchanting, something about their delicacy and their baby blueness. The episode of the Yellow Archangel is endearing. That bug probably felt as though it had summited on Mount Everest. No wonder it's situated there for all to see, proud, enjoying the view, the breeze. And the frosting on the cake is that it can now boast that its picture was taken by a famous photographer! I love the details about the mud and the discarding of self-consciousness in picture taking.

      Thank you for sharing your love of nature through your talents.

      I'm reminded of John Keats' beloved observation, which was a favourite quote of my maternal grandmother Laura and of her amazing daughter, my mother: "A thing of beauty is a joy forever" ("Endymion").

      Fantabulously created and presented. Up + UFABI + sharing.

      Kind regards, Stessily

      I agree, there is just something special about bluebells - I get quite excited about seeing them in spring, I have loved them since I was a child and went for walks in the wood with my family, so my Dad could take photos!

      The quote is beautiful...

      Lesley: I'm just getting to this wildflower article and we are well into summer! lol Your video is beautiful and so mezmerizing. I love watching it - it is so calming! I like what you did with black and white and with bringing color to the black and white. That was really neat! I love bluebells and the field of them is wonderful. You are so fortunate to live in such natural beauty. Thank you for taking us on your walk this morning. The English countryside is just beautiful and charming with all the pretty wildflowers! Thanks!

      'Bluebell woods' seem to be the right name given for these woods because of the flooded blue bells inside it. The photos are very beautiful and I enjoyed your description of the climate in your place.

      Up and beautiful.

      Lesley ~ Vunderbar! High quality work. What musical selection did you use, that made the presentation very meditative. I had to stop everything to watch and listen. Blessings, Debby

      Wonderful pictures! Thank you very much!

      Photography is one of my passions. Like you I like to take pictures of flowers and insects on flowers and plants!

      When I see your pictures of the bluebells it reminded me of Belgium when I was a kid; I used to go in the woods in April and pick a lot of them to bring them back to my mother. I just loved the scent of those flowers. You are bringing me those memories back... and now, I can't wait for Spring to come!
