These are a better shade of blue I think. ~~ Ciao nick
...Better than what Nick ?...... They do look better than the anemic type but in my humble opinion they are not the real thing ... I see no bell ! go back again and find some proper bluebells at once !!! :)) Nick
Nick Knack ~~~ The new glasses are on their way Nick with the Knack :)))) Better than the Spanish variety of course :)))) ~~~ Have a great weekend Nick ~~~ Ciao nick
But I still don't think they are the true English bluebell, which has the flowers.jpg) only on one side of the stem dear Nick, and is deeper blue. These I think are hybrids. Maybe we are in the process of losing our real bluebell woods forever :(
Link doesn't work :(
I'll try again
This definitely works :))))
Amelia Royan ~~~ :))))) glad you are back smiles :))) ~~~ This little clump were just in the hedgerow opposite Lancing Scout's hut ~ not that that has anything to do with it ~~~ but still.
Yes the link works and I thank you for that too oh wise macro :)
I have a not very good shot somewhere from yesterday of blue, pink and white bells all together in the verge of a roundabout on the A29 (Where the gatehouse shot was taken). It is a local beauty spot and there is a very large car park and stuff just off the roundabout to the north west as well. With lovely picnic areas and many walks to be done over the downs. There were horse trailers there too with people going off riding. Then nearby I found a track and my Landi was well off road hunting some rape fields I had spotted in the distance where there were no public roads anywhere near!! (I found them and caught them too!)
Bu take heart coz I think I found you some real bluebell woods too.
Do most bluebells start off pale and the darken with age and if so, why??? Ciao macro goat xx
VERY GOOD FLOWERS AND PHOTO. REGARDS SALİH ÖZBUDAK.
Domi Rolland ~~~ Thank you Domi ~~ Ciao nick
Salih ÖZBUDAK ~~~ Friendly greetings to you and thank you for your kind words ~~ Ciao nick
Hi its me, the Bluebell-Deprived One from Down South of the Line..
I must admit that these look very like the potted Campanula (Harebells) that we buy here from the local Nurseries, to plant in our gardens. They are not as vividly blue as the pictures I see of Bluebells, and their bell petals don't have that lovely sculpted curve at the tips, that your Bluebells so gracefully display.
(Betcha these are beautiful Harebells?? - or maybe not..???)
Quizzy Hazel, with warmest regards
Hazel Coetzee ~~~ Hello again Queen of the Bluebells ~~~~ I rely totally on the expert opinion of my dearest macro cloven footed one as she is a fully trained Botanist and wise beyond all measure ~~~ so whilst she has pronounced what they are not, she has merely suggested that these are Hybrids and then that is what they are in my book ~~~ so I'll leave you and Amelia to develop this line of thinking further. ~~~ Me I just like what I see and on Friday last anything blue was getting shot!!! ~~~ Ciao nick
steve drury ~~~ Thanks again Steve :)))
Very lovely Nick....another great photo...they are just too nice :)
Warm regards from Sandy...who loves anything blue ;)
scml ~~~ Hiya Sandy ~~~ thanks for your compliments ~~ and yes I too am rather fond of blue ~~ Warmest regards to you too from nick :)
Ye...there is something about blue flowers that make them kind of special...I think ;)
scml ~~ Yes they radiate a certain warmth ~ which is funny in a way because blue can be such a cold colour ~ now a woodland scene full of magenta might be intersting! ~~ See you Sandy
:) that would actually be very nice ;) such a vibrant colour set against all the lovely greenery...when you find it...can you please put up a photo of it ;)
Keep clicking away Nick ;) OK
See ya from Sandy
scml ~~ I think this might be a challenge that Tomas might rise too Sandy when he has time to spare, he might know a way of turning blue into Magenta with his magical powers ~ but also not me :)
nadiakushnir ~~ Thank you very much ~ I'm glad you like this shot too :) ~~ Ciao nick and have a wonderful weekend
