Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Yesterday my husband and I visited Spring Wood and apart from the visual beauty, the birds were contributing with there many and varied songs. I wish I could add the audio along with the photograph!

Spring Wood was originally called Oxheywoode, and was owned by monks from Whalley Abbey. (It was described as being “one bow shot East of the Abbey” in 1553.)

Today the wood is classed as semi-natural ancient woodland, which makes it a rarity, especially in Lancashire. It has pathways and picnic areas, catering for strong walkers and disabled visitors alike.

At this time of year, the wild bluebells are just beginning to open and create a blue carpet in the semi-shade beneath the trees.

Though the flowers are a little early in opening, April has been exceeding dry as can be seen in my workshop.

I wish you a happy weekend, Bev :-)
