A couple of weeks ago I made the trip over to Cheddar to photograph the wild garlic in Cheddar Wood.  Back then the garlic was just starting to flower.  I posted a few pictures but I really needed to return in a week or two.

Since then we have nothing but rain, cold and rain.

Much of the wood is managed by Somerset Wildlife Trust and is closed to the public.  Clearly we should respect this.  No problem, there are plenty of beautiful spots around the edge of the wood where you can keep to the public footpaths.

Eventually the sun came out for a few hours.  On returning to the wood the sheep were too distracting.  They clearly wanted a photograph, so here is their group shot…

The nearest place to park is in Axbridge.  From here you can follow the footpaths up the hill.  It is a very big hill so you may need to get fit!

And finally…

You have to love the lambs.
