Evening Mike.
I was there last Thursday and as f8 says, they have some 'Coming out' to do yet.
I'm there again tomorrow morning and evening so if you want, I'll PM you tomorrow night when I get back and let you know thier condition.
Judging by Thursdays display, they'll be ok for another week I reckon.
However, the wood further on up the road from Dockey wood is a little behind and will be fully out this week I think. That also goes for Ladies walk and Hoo wood which are in the same area.

Please let me know if you want me to PM you tomorrow.....or you could call me on my mobile after midday and I'll give you an 'On the spot' report....lol.
(Laurel Steinbeck, news at 10, Dockey wood.)
My number is on my website. I really don't mind.
Speak to you tomorrow maybe?

Morning Mike, wet here this morning but promises to brighten up later in the day.
I'm still going down to Ashridge today as I have other business down there so I'll pm you later tonight. It'll be late as I'm not planing to be back untill about 10.30- 11.00.
If you want, you can still call me later today. 07747 033924. Not a problem.

If you want to know about the Bluebells at any time, you can do what I do and that's call the Ashridge visitors centre on 01442 851227 and they will give you a Bluebell update. If you do, speak to Sally as she seems to have her head screwed on and knows her stuff. It might be an idea to give them a call one or two days before you plan to come down.

Laters Mike.

Gerry.

No Peter. You're thinking of Hyde Park Corner.

Mike, Just back from Ashridge (21.00) and had a pretty bad day.
No sun, some rain, not much light............until we were driving home of course!!!
The Bluebells in Dockey and Crawley wood are fully out I would say and are likely to be for at least another week....if not longer so I would say youwere ok for the weekend.
However, there were squilians of peopel there today and I just hope they didn't tread too many fowers down.

Good luck Mike and have a great day.

Gerry.
