LET’S BE GRATEFUL TO NATURE,
AND TO THOSE PEOPLE
WHO MAKE US HAPPY,
THEY ARE THE CHARMING GARDENERS
WHO INVITE OUR SOULS
TO BLOSSOM WITH JOY"
- Marcel Proust

This is another one of my bluebell photos taken at Blackbury Camp, which is an old Iron Age Site in Devon, Southern England
Blackbury Camp is an Iron Age hill fort situated in Southleigh, Devon, England. The ramparts are still relatively high, showing an unusual entrance feature. The fort occupies the end of a large ridge at some 185 metres (607 ft) above sea level.It was defended by a single bank and ditch, forming a roughly D-shaped enclosure. A triangular barbican was added to the south but was never completed. The fort was probably occupied in the 2nd and 1st centuries BC by a cattle-farming community.
