For years and years and years (get the idea?) I have been meaning to visit the famous (well around here famous) Yoxall bluebell woods. So this year because Spring came so late (postponing the blooming for a week) I got the family into action and we finally made it there.
It was completely beautiful and slightly educational - did you know the Spanish Bluebell has been slowly invading the countryside (for the last few hundred years) and intermixing with the cute, shy, well mannered British Bluebell and so gradually wiping it out - drat you the Spanish. Yoxall is a happy oasis of only English accents no hot blooded Spanish there (also there was plenty of yummy homemade cake!).
For more Skywatching pictures from all around the world go and see Skywatch Friday, thanks for anyone visiting from that link - you are likely to get a bit bored now as here comes the rest of the weekly bumpf I've not had a chance to catch up with. Project 52 people - stay with me I'll be there in a minute (realise this is breaking a whole load of rules for memes but have very limited time this week - visit next week to find out why - what a cliff hanger!!)
Here's the family photos - don't feel under any obligation to look unless there's some genetic connection there (and even then try not to lean on the keyboard too hard as you fall asleep). 'Daddy's friend Dave' came to stay for the weekend - I have a feeling he may not pay a return visit for a while, it made me realise quite how loud and shouty our house is!
