Pagan Eye: Bluebell wood

Bluebell woods are among the most magical of places in my opinion, and one of my favourites is Arlington Bluebell walk, in East Sussex. I took this photograph there last weekend. The bluebells are fully out and the ground is a carpet of blue.

The wood is managed by local charities and only open to the public for a few weeks of the year in April and May. You do have to pay to go in - £4 for adults this year - but the money goes to worthwhile causes. There is also a charity bookshop selling secondhand books, and a tearoom selling sandwiches, cream teas and lovely home-made cakes.

The organisers are also running a photography competition for the best bluebell photographs.

Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail is open daily until next weekend, May 23. It is at Bates Green Farm, Tye Hill Road, Arlington, near Polegate, East Sussex, BN26 6SH. Tel 01323 485151. The website is: www.bluebellwalk.co.uk/

On each of my Pagan Eye posts, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it.
