Bluebells

One sign of spring, at least to me, is the bluebell and lots of lovely photos have been appearing on blogs and various social media sites of woods full of bluebells, but up until yesterday I’d not really seen any apart from a few in gardens.  Then on a walk along the cliff path,  there growing though last year’s dried bracken where a few bluebells… the colour was really good to see after such a long bleak winter.

The British bluebell, Hyacinthoides non-scripta, are coming under thread from cultivated varieties,  the Natural History Museum tells you how to identity the different types here… The flowering time of the bluebell is also been used to study climate change, if you’d like to know more about the survey it can be found here…
