I’ve just come back from a truly magical walk in the bluebell woods at Greys Court in Henley. Sir Felix Brunner, who owned and lived in Greys Court until his death some years ago, loved to walk in these woods at bluebell time - at any time, in fact. Now that the National Trust has taken over Greys Court, its gardens and its woodland, anyone can follow what is called‘Sir Felix’s Gentle Path.’ The whole walk takes only about 25 minutes and beginning at the Maze you pass through several wooden five-barred gates named after Sir Felix and Lady Brunner’s children. So you’ll see Johnnie’s Gate, Dan’s Gate and Hugo’s Gate. At the end of the walk when you re-enter the grounds of the house you’ll pass The Gate of the Good Companions after crossing the Ha Ha by the Moon Gate

The Wisterias have just come out – these are in my neighbour’s garden
And here is a little panoramic view of the Bluebell Woods this morning. Hope it works.
