Spring is my favourite time of the year for many reasons. I love the longer days, the warmer weather(hopefully) and the abundance of beautiful spring flowers that you have the opportunity to venture out and see.
We always have an annual trip out to walk through the bluebell woods. I am always taken back by the majestic sight of the beautiful purple bonnets covering every inch of the woodland.
It is said that in folk law that bluebells are known as ‘fairy flowers’ and they are used to capture small people!
We had a change of venue today and after seeing some great pictures on a friends Facebook we took a trip to the National Trust site Limpsfied Common in Surrey. There are several car parks across the common but if you want a little something special added to your trip choose the Ridlands Grove car park.
From here a wonderful people have created five mini wooden houses through the woodland for you to find. There is Peter Rabbit’s Post Office, Hedgehog Hall, Owl House, Fox Villas and a couple more.
Owl house was nestled high in the trees so was a tricky one to spot, hedgehog hall came complete with its own working wishing well and my favourite was Peter Rabbit’s Post Office where you can leave a donation in the little red post box or write a letter to pop inside the office. Number four enjoyed getting Peter out and giving him a carrot.
We spent the rest of our trip climbing trees, walking along logs and searching for Fox Villas which eluded us. We will be back to to hunt it out again soon!
