Edford Woods - Bluebells galore!

Well this is only just over a month late!!! I need to get back into the blogging groove again! This particular walk in Edford Woods is only available to the public from February to May. So, on the 31st of May I took a last walk around for this year to see what was about. I was expecting the Bluebells to be over largely, but as it has been such an unusual year weatherwise, it turned out that they were in their prime! Here are some photos I took on my walk around this circular route. Please click to enlarge any photos. My Bluebell lined path way at the beginning of the walk.
Sunlit Bluebells
 Close up....
 .....with an Early Purple Orchid....
Speaking of Early Purple Orchids, I was surprised to see these out as well. Poking up amongst the Lesser Celendine.
Another plant that was flowering in profusion was the Ramsons. The delicate aroma of onions followed me as I made my way around the wood.
The growth was at its lushful best with ferns unfurling all over. 
 Some fully out.....
 There was lots of this graceful grass about, but I don't know what it is. Anyone know please?
 I'll finish off this first post on Edford Woods with a combination of Greater Stitchwort and Bluebells. Always a lovely pairing.
 I'll post the second part of my walk around Edfords woods soon!
