Adventures in bluebells, what you can do with a bit of shelter!

Bluebells in Woodwick, Orkney
After whining about the wind and gardening here - I thought I'd put up a few photos of what's possible with a bit of hard work and a bit of shelter! The photos are from a wee while ago in the springtime - but the garden at Woodwick, Evie in Orkney is gorgeous! These are photos from an adventure to the garden in the springtime.
The Woodwick burn
A perfect place for a walk with the family and a friends dog - amazing what you can see in the trees. We enjoy going here as there are very few places where you can walk under trees here and see something as beautiful as a bluebell woodland.
Watching the wildlife up a tree..........................
And brilliant to get out and see the beautiful flowers - utterly amazing what you can achieve when you get a bit of shelter up and are able to develop a garden within it. Woodwick is mainly sycamore trees (Acer pseudoplantanus) which grow to a decent height here and can provide good shelter.
The wild life was very 'feline' luckily the dog was on a lead!
What a wonderful experience to recharge the batteries from the windy envrionment - an inspiration to go and enjoy and get idea of how to develop a garden here and what is possible with a bit of shelter and a whole lot of hard work.
