Spring Colours In The New Forest

As the baby animals appear you know spring comes into effect you can see how the colours across the beautiful ancient forest begin to change. Greens start to re-appear on the deciduous trees as the coppers begin to disappear behind the intoxicating greenery.

The best time to see the beautiful spring colours within the forest is when the sun is shining across the beautiful national park. The sunlight reflects perfectly off the new leaves which are vibrant and bright, which makes the perfect background for a stunning spring photograph.

Home to a variety of flowers including bluebells, the ancient woodland is the best place to see the blossoming flower come into full bloom. The bluebells start to flower throughout April and May, and will cover the rustic woodland floor with beautiful shades of purple and blue.
Spring is a perfect time to stroll around to see the splendid spring flowers including daffodils, primroses, magnificent magnolias and beautiful camelias all bursting into bloom.
Another great place to see the spring flowers in bloom is Furzey Gardens where you can visit the wonderfully recreated RHS Chelsea 2012 Gold award winning garden that is now permanently sited within the gardens overlooking the lake.
The New Forest is a great location to watch the change in beautiful colours due to the vast range of trees and wild flowers which grow across the forest. Enjoy the colours at their best on one of the well renowned walking routes, which provides you with the perfect opportunity to capture some beautiful pictures whilst also enjoying the warmer weather.

There is a variety of beautiful wild flowers that you can spot in the New Forest from the lesser celandine with its beautiful buttery yellow. Why not go in search for the sunny primrose which beautiful shades of yellow make it a stunning addition to the New Forest flowers. In the spring you can also find delicate beautiful little flowers such as the wood anemone, which can be found in the woodlands and displays subtle shades of baby pink and off white.

Come to the New Forest this spring and find all of the foals and calves.
