Let’s start with the calendar picture for Kew Gardens in April that I am enjoying this month.


Bluebells – the true native variety are such wonderful blooms – particularly when they have spread to form a carpet. That has been captured by artist Irene Fawkes who created this image in 1930.

But of course, you don’t have to go to Kew to see bluebells in profusion.  There’s a wood less than two miles from my house as the crow flies which is well known for bluebells and they can be enjoyed for free.

And there we see my wife doing just that.
