Some day if I get really good, or lucky, or some combination thereof, I will be able to say this about one of my pictures: "But I'm not at all bored of talking about it."

Leigh woods

Bluebells in Leigh woods

I went walking in Bristol's Leigh woods this last weekend. Quite the beautiful English woods. Hazel, Hawthorn, Sticky willy, Beech, Yew, Laurel, Oaks and Ivy, Nick, my flatmate told me the names of the trees and plants we saw because I lamented not knowing their names. Then he ruthlessly quizzed me on them and tut-tutted at my poor recall. Pointed out a badger hole, no badger though. Freshly hatched flies swarming over water. The ferns were unfurling from the ground. There were buttercups here and there. I saw for the first time the ground under the trees carpeted with bluebells.

And with garlic! The woods even smelled of garlic!
