Bluebell wood Guernsey

Bluebell wood in Guernsey Channel Islands is a riot of colour in the springtime.

The temperature so far this year has not been very spring like (happily I managed to escape it and spend it in more reliably warm Phoenix Arizona).

Tree felled in the recent storms


The sun and the warmth returned yesterday so what seemed like every walker and dog on the island headed for bluebell wood before the bluebells die back for another year.

Daisies break through the traditional guernsey granite boundary walls.

A lot of time and effort is being put into removing the non indigenous white bluebells. The paths leading to the wood are still showing a lot of white.

Thank you for visiting!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
