In Bristol, there are a few places to admire bluebells. One of them is Abbots Leigh, in North Somerset.

We went there without high hopes because we were aware that the temperamental weather (more rain than sun) had stunted the growth of flowers all over England. Yet, we harboured the hope of seeing bluebells in the woodlands, just as we had witnessed last spring in North Cornwall (blog post belum keluar lagi... hahaha!).
It was a sunny day. Sheep laid on the green meadows - a common sight in England, Wales and Kg. Dioh in Kuala Pilah :P.
Walking through the dense foliage, felt like home @ Malaysia. Steering away from the well-trodden path, we found the carpets of violet and blue :).

There were not many bluebells as we had anticipated, but enough for me to feast my eyes and plan for some shots. This time around, though, I had to share my camera with a photographer pencen. Hubby who has long given up photography as he opined that digital photography was not as challenging as single-lense reflex, suddenly decided to pick-up the camera again. Adoi!! Bukan main lagi hogging my camera... camni rupanya purist ambik gambar... (tersangatlah) SLOW AND STEADY (pasang tripod bagai).

As usual, there's no photos of me because I was the photographer :).
