Rhapsody in blue

The bluebells on Brush Hill are at their best at the moment, so I took an early morning walk through the woods. It was freezing cold, but worth it, as the sun was shining and they looked beautiful.  They're over so quickly, but really do signal the start of good times.

We have about half of the world's population of bluebells in the UK and they're an iconic woodland flower. They're an indicator of ancient woodland and provide a valuable early source of nectar for bees and other insects.


There were a few white bluebells in amongst the mass of blue
