Going native

Native English bluebells, such a pretty sight, giving that characteristic 'purple haze' effect across the woodland floor. Hirst Wood is a prime location and is full of them at this time of year; the ancient woodland with its light tree canopy gives just the dappled, shady conditions the plants love.

I went a bit mad with the camera! Only because they are one of my favourite sights and one reason I am very happy to live in England.


  1. Beautiful and eye pleasing scene.

  2. I always thought they only grew in woodland too, but check this out
    It's been a brilliant year for them everywhere it seems.

  3. Just beautiful. It makes you want to frolic. They were my mums favourite flower and she missed them very much when she came to Australia.

  4. I don't blame you, jennyfreckles.
