Bluebells and Azaleas

A bright but chilly start to the May Bank Holiday weekend with temperatures only just above freezing. After seeing many inspirational photos recently from friends of the bluebell displays around the South East, it prompted me to drive over to the National Trust’s Winkworth Arboretum with my camera.

Probably just in time too, as the helpful lady at the entrance was saying that this was probably the last weekend for the bluebells.

There were plenty of bluebells still to see and admire.  Often the camera just doesn’t do the carpet of blue justice.

The blooming azaleas were  stunningly magnificent in their white and pinks.
