These are genuine native bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta).
Beautiful flowers in spring! Nice shot of colour and shadows, greetings from Greece
Thanks DailyMadness. What the picture doesn't convey is the amazing perfume given off by all the bluebells.
ohh purdey12345 I would just give anything to experience that nice aroma of the bluebells. Great shot indeed! Cheers, Peter(hungry for spring)
Thank you Peter. Not many more weeks to wait :-)
Thanks wendy. I think it helps to have the sun shining! I've been looking at your close-up pictures of flowers and they are beautiful. Best wishes, purdey
Hi purdey best before you know of it, spring is here have a look on this phototaken this morning in Copenhagen. Best wishes Peter
Wow, that's really something! And so early! We have bluebells, but not native ones. The so-called Spanish bluebells will naturalize here, I have some of the white ones in my shady spots. They don't appear to have any scent. Here are some blue Spanish bluebells (from 2003) that were planted on purpose.
And a yellow star my friend, I will certainly want to see this again many times!
Thanks very much Nawitka, a real honour! This is from last year when the bluebells were a week earlier than usual. They are out now though. All the best, purdey
Very beautiful place, excellent photo!
Hi from USA, Jean
Thank you for your kind comment Jean. 'Cracking' in the context I used it about your fine raccoon image means 'excellent' or 'very good'. I apologize for my tendency to lapse into vernacular English. I'll try not to do it again :-(
best wishes, purdey
purdey, Oh, I understood the meaning just great, I have heard it before and think it is a cracking good word! You go right ahead and keep on using it and any other fine word that pops into your head. I enjoy hearing from other places and learning.
Have you ever heard of the word gom? I am not sure how it is spelled but it is a 'mountain' word here in this area of the 'South', USA. I am not exactly how it happened but only a few folks seem to use it and folks that are not from these mountains are unfamiliar with it. It means a mess, needs cleaning.
That is my word and I have a friend who hates it when I use it. Don't get much chance to use it here though, most everything is great!
Hi I'm back again, just love this one! How are they coming on this year?
Not so good this year unfortunately Nawitka. They've been doing quite a lot of tree felling in the woods this year and there's broken branches all over the place. It'll probably recover by next year - I certainly hope so.
