There used to be tons of bluebells around Dairy Pit years ago. Very nice.

Beautiful! I love trees at this time of year when the new leaves are so green.

Lovely photo. These are our own native Bluebells, they have the darker more slender flowers on the stem, and fewer flowers. The more common bluebell seen in most gardens are the Spanish variety with the paler broader flower and more flowers on the stem.

Thanks all, and for the info Paula, there does appear to be a lot more bluebells this year and also in Borsdane Wood. H.

When I was a young girl, my friends and I would go and pick bluebells. I would separate mine into bunches, and sell them door to door for 1 penny a bunch. Then ice cream!!

5 years later ... But I love this photo - I can almost smell the scent of those lovely bluebells.
