The bluebells are late this year so I thought I'd dig out an old pic from last year.
We are so lucky to have this ancient woodland near where we live and the bluebells can flourish undisturbed, last year was a bumper year.
The weather changed on the tuesday after easter to nice and sunny from dank and cloudy, so I've started gardening. Each year I have all good intentions to keep on top of things but I never do, still, I do try lol!

The easter hare

There are lots of conflicting stories and legends about Oestre(Easter), the goddess of spring, and her hare. Some say he started as a little wounded bird and she turned him into a hare so he could run from his enemies, the only birdlike part of him that remained was that he could lay eggs.

The hare eventually evolved into the easter bunny. I like the idea of an easter hare much better.
