I googled to find out where the nearest bluebell wood might be. It turns out that a large chunk of Vaynol Park, which I always thought was strictly private (it is surrounded by a massive park wall), was given or sold to the National Trust and is now looked after by the Woodland Trust.
We started across fields full of oaks and lambs:-
Through a gate and down a woodland track:-
We arrived at a perfect bluebell wood:-
Not just bluebells, but wood anemones:-
Acres of wild garlic:-
And what I think was an early purple orchid (but I am happy to be corrected):-

What a perfect walk for Easter Sunday.
Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park was also full of wild garlic yesterday. Its wonderful pungent smell followed us round on our walk.
Beautiful photos, my favourite time of yearn the garden and woodlands.
