It is that time of year when everyone goes mad for those beautiful little blue flowers – bluebells! We are lucky to live close to Rutland Water, a wonderful reservoir surrounded by woodland and countryside. It is fab for biking, for walking, for playing, for picnicing and for bluebells! Over the half term we took a trip down to Rutland water with some friends in search of the magical little flowers and found them in abundance.

Littlelish loves everything and anything a little bit fairytale (as do I) and is currently reading The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton which she adores. So you can imagine how excited we were to have the whole bluebell wood to ourselves. With our imagination fired up we admired these beautiful flowers, the children totally in their element, dreaming of fairies, pixies and enchanted trees. There is nothing quite like being surrounded by a carpet of blue flowers to make you smile.
