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.
At this time of year local woods are carpeted in bluebells. Here are some suggestions of bluebell woods you might like to visit now we are allowed to explore once more.
