Lower Woods spectacular

NEITHER of us remember Lower Woods, in south Gloucestershire ever looking more spectacular.  It is really difficult to describe the all embracing assault on our senses, especially the scent!

The sun poked through the clouds just enough to enable me to capture the occasional shot of the bluebells, lesser celandines, wood anemones, early purple orchids, wood sorrel, to name but a few.

  1. What a fabulous wood, judging from your pictures spring looks about 2 weeks
    in advance of our area up there in N.E.Lancashire in the Pennines.

  2. Yes - it is fantastic. It has nightingales too but I am yet to hear them.


Have your say...
