Seas of Blue
The first bluebells are starting to come out in the Ashdown woods. In a week, or perhaps two, there will be a carpet of blue beneath the trees, mingling with the yellow primroses and the white of the wild wood anemones.

Spring in the Wood
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade."
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
Ashdown, the fairytale house, is waking from its winter sleep. It is spring in the woods, with snowdrops and primroses, and soon the house will be open again too.
