Our May Day Woodland Walk

The two girls are so similar yet at times completely different. Aly would rather play on the computer than go outside, whereas Mia loves nature. Very rarely when I ask Mia if she’d like to go for a walk does she say no.

On the May Day Bank Holiday as the weather was beautiful we thought we’d enjoy the fresh air and see what we could find. These woods are our regular haunt, they’re just 100m from our house and they are often so peaceful.

The plan for me was to find bluebells, the plan for Mia was to find various interesting things.

Her list at the end consisted of:

  • 7 Squirrels
  • Butterflies
  • Bees
  • A couple of dogs
  • Lots of singing birds

I, on the other hand, was more than happy with the number of bluebells I found.

We then spend the next hour walking around in the sunshine, listening to the birds and enjoying each others company.

No bluebell adventure would be complete without a photo, Mia happily found a little log to sit on with the bluebells in the background.

When I first took this photo I liked the little bit of sunlight on her but now looking back on it I’m not so sure.

    Lovely family time by the sound of it, and always good to get a computer-lover a bit of screen free time in nature! #CountryKids

    A walk in a bluebell woods is a must at this time of year and last weekend was a perfect opportunity. I must say I couldn’t resist doing the same. Your photos are beautiful, bluebells and snowdrops never come across so well on camera as in real life but I’d say you have captured the scene perfectly. I love the bit of sunlight on Mia, it makes the whole photo more real and of the moment.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CuntryKids

    I love this time of year for the bluebells, the spread of them across the forest floor is so iconic and great for getting out with the family. Mich x #Countrykids

    Bluebell woods are always such lovely places for a walk – it’s a shame the bluebell season doesn’t last a little bit longer. Love Mia’s list of interesting things that she found on the walk. #countrykids
