Bluebell Woods

Last week, we, almost accidentally, visited the most beautiful bluebell woods. Wanting to make the most of our National Trust membership, we decided to go to Emmetts Garden with those of our children who weren't revising! The Garden is near Westerham so quite accessible from London, for half a day. When I looked up the details, I found that the bluebells were one of the attractions at this time of year and well, that was definitely true.

We had been having long discussions about Spanish and English bluebells over the previous week and these bluebells seemed to be the real native British variety.

I've been impressed at how child friendly the National Trust has become and a wild play area kept one little boy very happy although using the stakes provided to help with a den was not on his agenda! He took the sticks out and built his own!

Younger Daughter loves taking photos and the photos in this post are all thanks to her.

There were formal gardens.

The best part were the gorgeous bluebell banks.

More bluebells:

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I sayb unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like on of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith.
Matthew 6 v 28 to 30
View out over the Weald of Kent. Not shown in the picture but we were able to watch a couple of buzzards which seemed to be hunting, in the distance.

Definitely worth a visit in bluebell season and ideal for children as well as adults. This was a very informal nature walk but certainly not the least!
