Beautiful, bonny bluebells! Nice to know I can feast my eyes on them whenever I am missing my English Spring!...Unfortunately they are not native here! you can purchase bulbs at quite a high price, but I never really tried them .
..Thanks Harry.

Ah ! Bluebell time, just takes me back to my childhood, we used to come home with armfuls ,and then put them in jam jars, your not allowed to pick them anymore, but as children long ago it was a favourite time of year , we were very innocent , we were not at all destructive


Comment by Maureen on 6th May 2017 at 08:21
What a lovely scene to see Harry..you can't beat nature for its colour...thank you.


Comment by Maggie K on 6th May 2017 at 08:25
The Bluebells are fabulous this year. There are lots of them with patches of wild garlic in the small woods round Shevington.


Comment by A.W. on 6th May 2017 at 08:25
The very epitome of spring, thanks for this Harry, brightened up a dull morning!

A lovely Spring scene in a special place, Haigh. I can see this photo as a jigsaw.


Comment by Veronica on 6th May 2017 at 09:29
The first picture of the Bluebells so far.....I wondered when it would be. Brings back the memories of long ago in the woods!

There used to be a mass of bluebells in the woods as you went along Lees Lane, Appley Bridge, they were always a beautiful blue carpet of spring flower.


Comment by Fred Mason on 6th May 2017 at 20:37
Britboy,

Remember the Long Wall? Lots of bluebells in there and also Porters Wood.

I once dug up some bluebell bulbs in the Autumn in Porters Wood and took them back to Canada. B.C. actually where the climate is mild. They grew well and should still be there.

Apologies to Harry.

Smashing photo.


Comment by Harry C. on 7th May 2017 at 08:27
Thanks for your comments all, there are also masses of bluebells in Borsdane Wood. H.


Comment by Mary R on 7th May 2017 at 09:33
Yes Harry, Borsdane Wood is looking particularly beautiful just now.


Comment by Veronica on 7th May 2017 at 09:52
Also growing in my garden -how I don't know as I haven't planted them!! They are very welcome though and lovely to put in a jam jar in the kitchen window - the scent reminds me of the woods in days gone by!


Comment by From Where on 8th May 2017 at 19:56
The bluebell belongs to a long lost wood, a
time we would like to return to if we could.
Simple I know, but the better we know , lost would be worse, indeed a curse, of something so so special..


Comment by Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 12th May 2017 at 23:34
Ellen
What do you mean about "not native over here " ?

Vancouver Island is covered with them.


Comment by Ellen on 21st May 2017 at 19:18
Alan (on Vancouver Island). Maybe I should have said in Ontario?

..perhaps you could e mail me some bulbs? LOL.
