Bluebells in the Woods

One of the most rewarding sights in spring is discovering that cobalt blue haze in the woodland. We are very lucky in the British Isles as we have around 40% of the world’s bluebells, so what we take for granted is actually quite unique.

    There are not so many bluebells around here, but the sight of a great spread of them on a forest floor is heartwarming indeed. Close to London, Epping Forest was a great place to see them, and when I was young, we would be taken on an afternoon drive there, to enjoy the sight. We used to pick big bunches of them too. I am told that it is no longer permitted to do that, as they are rare.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

      As long as you don’t dig them up I can’t see the harm in picking them. It is the Spanish invaders that are the biggest problem and they are the ones you usually see in gardens.

  2. Really gorgeous shots, Jude. Lucky you to be there for the bluebell season. 🙂
