We were all set for a nice little jaunt to Spring Wood to see the Bluebells once more before they are all gone. It seems we were not alone in that aim and there was absolutely nowhere to park. Not even a teeny weeny little spot for our new teeny weeny car. Oh well... it was time for a rethink and the answer was Rotten Wood. A less known woody spot that's great for walks but rather lacking in bluebells and we hadn't been there for quite a while. So off we went and weren't we glad we did.
In the field next to the wood were some horses and we just had to go and say hello to one of them as the girls were convinced that it was Black Beauty.
This prompted much expressing of desire to have a pony each from the girls.... hmmm.
There were one or two interesting bits and bobs. Younger daughter found a pine cone that looked like an apple core. It had to be duly photographed. Please note what a glamour puss she is. Out for a woodland adventure but still fully accessorised!!!
And there were the mossy, strangely shaped stones. There were all sorts of theories flying around as to what they might be for....
