Bluebells in Gobions Wood
« on: April 25, 2014, 10:10:24 am »
This year the bluebells are the best I have ever seen them. I am guiding a walk on Sunday morning at 9.45 from Moffatts Car Park Jonas Way. Or go there at your leisure, this week end they are their very best and take a camera.

Thanks for the pic GWTSEC. Sorry won't be able to make it. Have tweeted to spread the word.  :)

I've just looked and the weather forecast is for heavy rain.

Hopefully, they will have it wrong.

Bluebells smell lovely in heavy rain, and the blue and green stand out much more vividly when they are wet.   :)

Lovely to see so many people enjoying Gobions Wood with the bluebells and wood anemone out and kids taking part in an egg hunt.  :) 

Sad, though, to see one family letting their toddler ride his bikes through the bluebells and trampling the plants as they take photos. Very strange behaviour.  :icon_scratch:

Perhaps the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust could consider putting some 'Please Keep To The Paths' and 'Please Don't Trample The Bluebells' signs up for those for whom it's not obvious?  :-\
