Malvern Hills Visit (15th May 2023)

"The bluebells are all out, and the sky is clear blue" - Paul McCartney 

We passed by the Malvern Hills on our return from the Isle of Wight and wanted to pay another visit to see the bluebells in full flower. A couple of weeks later we had the opportunity to do this. The first port of call was Putley, a small village located between Hereford and Ledbury, for their Annual Open Gardens event. We attended the same event in 2022 and in previous years; some of the show gardens were the same but there were also a couple of new ones.

It was about 4 pm when we left Putley and headed for the Malvern Hills. After parking up in one of the Malvern Hills' car parks, we had an early tea - cooked to perfection by Mary in the back of the campervan.

It was a bit of a climb up to the top of the hills ...

On the hill slopes (Herefordshire side) were carpets of bluebells ...
