Bluebells#fotd#ff15

Bluebell flowe

This month my garden is covered in bluebells or wild hyacinths. They fill every spare space and their spreading foliage stops other flowers growing. However I do love the delicate bell shape flowers which carpet the edge of my lawn. Purists would object that they are the Spanish variety of bluebell rather than the more delicate British bluebell which has a thinner arching stem and a stronger perfume.

According to the National trusts top tips for photographing bluebells you should choose a cloudy day. Personally I prefer less contrast and the gorgeous sunny weather we have enjoyed in April.

Despite the name like their larger cousin the hyacinth they can be pink or white though this is less common.

At this time of year local woods are carpeted in bluebells.

  1. Hi Anne, Just adore bluebells and your photos are fine so I pinned this post. I like to think of myself as mature not old, but you get the message. Visiting you at UNLIMITED MONTHLY LINK PARTY 12 where I shared How to Use Chakra Colors to Renew Energy and Create Wellness. Stay safe, be well, and lead a colorful life!
