ITS BLUEBELL WALK TIME! APRIL 2021

A group of 5 members of the walking group met up for Whitley WI’s spring bluebell walk – not as sunny as the weather had been but a very pleasant walk, dry underfoot and nicely level.
They walked from Jean’s house past lots of beautiful gardens full of unusual tulips and other spring flowers and up to the Pewterspear area of Appleton. They then continued along the Pewterspear Green linear park and across parkland/woodland until they reached Green Lane. Carrying on through Julia’s wood and into the Lumb Brook Valley where they enjoyed the picturesque woodland of Fords Rough, full of bluebells, wood anemones, marsh marigolds and celandine. The spring colours on the trees, the birdsong, and the brook running through made a beautiful and peaceful walk with very few people around.
As a bonus on their return journey they passed a small pond with 2 large clutches of 12 tiny mallard ducklings, and another one with a small brood of coot, very newly hatched.
The walkers ended up with drink in Jean’s garden and tasted the fruit cakes which she had made for the Baking Beauties Zoom meeting – so good to be able to meet up and chat face to face.
THANK YOU TO ANN FOR YOUR ORGANISATION AND TO JEAN FOR HER HOSPITALITY
