When we lived at our old house, we would walk to town through a churchyard as it was the quickest route which also avoided strolling past the park which when you have a child/children who would recognise the playground it is hard to walk past without pleas of "can we go to the park please mummy?".
Last year around about this time, the churchyard was full of bluebells and one sunny afternoon we stopped so Burton could get out of the buggy and go exploring and touch and take a closer look at these pretty blue springtime flowers.
Bluebells don't seem to stay around for very long and the next time we walked through that churchyard they had all gone much to Burton's disappointment. He asked me where they had gone and I did my best to explain to a two and a half year old, and each time we walked through the churchyard he would ask me again where the bluebells were and when they would return. In the end after lots of "but why mummy" replies I told him that the bluebells had gone to sleep and would be back next year after Jenson's birthday *ahem*
So fast forward a year and of course Burton has forgotten all about those bluebells and how that now that Jenson has had his birthday and it is May, they are back once again! *kids!!* However, as we no longer make that trek to the town centre now that we have moved, I have been wanting to take both boys on a bluebell hunt for the past couple of weeks. Last Sunday it finally happened and I bundled the boys in the car and headed off for a place which OH suggested but I couldn't find it from his directions! So in the end I saw a sign saying public bridlepath, drove along, parked the car and off we went on our bluebell hunting adventure!! It was like looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, as we found everything but bluebells!
and finally we found our pot of gold - some bluebells at last!!
