RSPB Garston Woods Nature Reserve, Dean Lane, Sixpenny Handley Nr Shaftesbury.

Although this interest ancient woodland is not a large forest I only had time to see half of it because I did not have to go far to take some nice pictures and ran out of time. It would have meant walking further and taking fewer pictures and I am not going to do that. So I will visit again, my pictures were mainly landscapes of the Wild Garlic flowers, Bluebells and Early Purple Orchids and also a few test pictures through a crystal ball.

I loved the smell of the Garlic flowers while being surrounded by the lovely sounds of the birds singing, enjoying spring in the forest. As you would expect for an RSPB Nature reserve it looks well managed and you do not have to wander off the paths to see the flowers and wildlife. The only disaster was me burning a hole in my favourite jacket carrying my crystal ball in the forest and my wife telling me how much it cost when returning home, reminded me of being a kid again.  The roads to the Nature reserve was great fun in my sports car I cannot wait to return to this magical forest.
