Walk in the bluebells

forest edge native white dogwood flowering 
 We went out to Manassas to visit and got a little time on Friday April the 6th to take a two hour walk across the Bull Run Battlefield and over to the Stone Bridge for a look at the magnificent wild Virginia Blue Bells carpeting the forest floor by the creek.
tall Virginia pines and white dogwood flowers along the trail

pasture land is beautiful edged in native trees. 

jack in the pulpit grew up on the side of a boardwalk over the swampy areas 

blue flowers carpet the forest floor all along bull run beside the old stone bridge

view from the river bank looking up the slope

typical blue bells 

one or two were pink!
