Bluebella Woods

Hello friends
Today as we head off to the hospital I wanted to share some 
pictures of a special place - this is the woods behind my parents' home
and Bella's most favourite place in the world.
It is rare to meet anyone as you wander through these woods and it has been
a place for me to occasionally visit and get my thoughts in order.
Over the last couple of weeks the bluebells have shot up and you can actually 
smell them as you enter the woods.  
I captured some photos on my phone, I'm afraid not the best quality.
 Slightly blurred but wanted to show how Bella insists on jumping onto these fallen trees
as opposed to running under them!
I've chosen to rename it Bluebella Woods! 
And of course it wouldn't be right if I didn't post something crafty so how about this...
a scrapbook page I created a few years ago featuring the same woods.
I've used Grand Big Scalloped Circles as part of the background.
A fluttering of butterflies!

Again, huge thanks for all your good wishes - we will head off today knowing
we have so much love and support and that truly makes a difference.
It has been a revelation of true friendship.

Love and thanks dear friends.

Morning Christine, Beautiful piccies, love bluebells, I noticed about 3 stems of bluebells in my back border yesterday, I planted a box full of bluebell bulbs a few years ago, and I have 3 that have come to fruition !!! I wish I had all these in your piccies ha ha. Bella looks in 'doggy heaven', bet she loves to run in those woods and investigate all the brill smells.
Loving your layout with the bluebell wood piccies, and brill little butterflies.
Safe journey today, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
