Heartwood forest near the village of Sandridge and the city of St.Albans is a truly magical place, it is a newly emerging woodland, owned and managed by the Woodland trust,it is England’s largest native woodland. The forest is surrounded by ancient woodlands where we saw woodpeckers and a couple of week’s ago beautiful Bluebells. Sometimes the tiny Periwinkle can be forgotten or trodden on. The language of flowers suggests that Periwinkles represent an early friendship.
This photograph was inspired by Ese’s photo prompt ‘waiting’. I like the way the birds look as if they are queuing and waiting for something to happen. My Border Collie is waiting in anticipation too. Even in St.Albans we have had flooding as you can see in the photo. I hope you enjoy the peaceful setting.
