Bluebells On Church Lane

Knowing that our favourite location for English bluebells would likely be in bloom today Jackie drove me out to Church Lane, Boldre.

Fortunately, I was well wrapped up against the bitter, biting, North wind that belied the bright sunshine.

A mallard sunned itself on a tussock in Pilley lake.

A troop of ponies played chicken across the road to Beulieu.

Back at Boldre Jackie photographed a few somnolent donkeys.

This evening we all dined on more of Jackie’s penne Bolognese meal.


  1. Your bluebell woods are so lovely. We don’t have bluebells, but we have mallards, and the babies are beginning to appear now. Such fun!

  2. I love the beautiful bluebells and the darling donkeys! 🙂
    I hope you are feeling better!
    Will you have your eye surgery?
    (((HUGS))) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  3. I’m having trouble finding blue flowers and you’ve got them on the sides of the roads – just like Texas.

  4. I love those somnolent donkeys. I think they have the right idea. I’m headed to bed, too. Thanks for your post, Derrick. Always delightful!
