Bluebells at the Silk Wood, Westonbirt Arboretum

I was so looking forward to wandering through bluebell woods in Cornwall, but it turns out we had tonnes of them almost on our doorstep at Westonbirt Arboretum.

We started off on the treetop walkway – a great way to get close to the trees and the birds.

These jackdaws were so close I felt I could have reached out and touched them!

I do love a bit of fungi…in the right place.

We wandered ‘off-piste’ following the lure of patches of purple.

The blossom isn’t half bad either…

Found this intriguing seat – sadly with a notice that it is not for public use.

A last chance to admire our feathered friends before heading to the cafe for a vegetable Thai curry…and jolly nice it was too!
