Perfect, Rosemary. Love the sharp definition of the trees in your shots.
Glad you enjoyed seeing the post Mike - thank you
It is always a treat to see the Bluebells, Rosemary, and they are as glorious as ever, contrasted with the pale green of the leaves and trees. I always think of the Bluebell Fairy!
Soon the bluebells days will be at end for this year Patricia, but I always have to visit the woods at least once during their flowering season.
♡ thank you
When I see bluebells, I always think of the old folk song "The Bluebells of Scotland."
Perhaps sung by Kenneth McKellar!
Hello Rosemary, I always love it when you show the English bluebells--truly a magic spectacle. In the U.S., we often get carpets of violets, but they are a smaller flower that hugs the ground more.--Jim
Hello Jim - yes, violets are lovely too - I have them growing in the lawn, and always ask our man that cuts to grass to try and avoid cutting them down.
Too pretty, hard to believe it's real.
You will have to visit us again in late April/May and hopefully you may then see them for yourselves.
The bluebells look lovely, Rosemary! We also have some in the woods in Vienna, but not as many I think.Best wishes,Lisa
That is lovely that you have them in the woods in Vienna - I know that we have 50% of all the bluebells here, and the rest are scattered in various places on the Continent. They are said to have been carried here during the Ice Age.
I would so much love to see this in real life at least once, what a show !
I am compelled to visit the woods every year at this time
How lovely! That must be a beautiful time of year.
They are one of the markers across the seasons, sadly soon they will be all over.
Oh this is so beautiful! Stunning photos
Thank you very much
Forrest with these lovely blue flowers is like a fairy tale. So beautiful photos.
Glad you enjoyed seeing them and thank you
Beautiful images we too are making the most of enjoying visiting different locations where the bluebells grow, their season is so short. Sarah x
The Bluebells along with all of the blossom this year has been really beautiful.
Just Bluetiful! Margaret P
Ah! thanks Margaret, I have enjoyed that comment very much.
Gorgeous! Beauty in every shot.
The waves of blue are so beautiful. There are some bluebells in the woods near our home, but they are in patches. I hope they naturalize and spread into those undulating lines of blue as in your photos. I have several patches in the garden, too, and they are filling me with delight just now.
Our bluebells were left here in our ancient broadleaf woods following the ice-age. I suspect that you may have Spanish bluebells! - if they have blue antlers and stamens they are Spanish and if if they have cream ones they are British. Another clue is the flower itself Spanish ones are wide and bell like, British ones are more tubular and the petals at the bottom curl right back.
Lovely collection of photos. I have Spanish ones in my garden that make it look really special at this time of year although I know there's some concerns about interbreeding with wild Scottish ones. Snowdrops, Crocus, Daffodils, Tulips, Cherry Blossom then Bluebells- The modern 'colour clock' of spring in the British Isles we have all become accustomed to enjoying as the season progresses into summer.
I suppose that we would love the Spanish bluebell if it wasn't for the fact that it is causing problems up and down the country. It is much more vigorous corrupting our native bluebells and creating a fertile hybrid.
Dear Rosemary, Wish I could walk among these beautiful forests trails.
Dear Gina - would have been lovely to have your company
Just amazing! Love the green and the bluebells...thank´s for sharing this with us Rosemary, lovely!Love from Titti
The fresh green leaves with the blue makes a lovely combination - thanks Titti very much♡
