summer at last

The summer has arrived in England, the last few days and nights were very warm and dry. We got up very early on Sunday morning and drove to the forest on top of the hill.
Leaving the car on the main road, we walked through the forest, in the morning sunshine, heading for the "settlement", the Parkhill Camp.











The Parkhill Camp is an interesting area. Is is believed that during an iron age there was a large settlement here.





















The contours of land in front of us certainly suggest that this site is man made, but by whom?
















But the main reason we come here in the spring is the very English sight, the carpet of bluebells.









On the way home we picked some hedge parsley and pink campion.
