A bluebell wood is one of nature’s unforgettable wonders. The iconic flowers reach their peak of perfection during this month in England, creating drifts of colour and filling the air with a delicate perfume. Preferring a moist, shady position bluebells thrive in the dappled sunshine of our ancient broadleaved woodlands. Enjoy a walk in the woods and discover this native wild flower.

“How the merry bluebell rings
To the mosses underneath…”
– Alfred Lord Tennyson, “Adeline”

  1. What a lovely reminder of the 6 months I lived in Rudgewick, Sussex in the late 1970s. We would often walk through the bluebells in the nearby woods. Thanks for sharing this image Jude.


    1. Nothing like an English bluebell wood. We Brits complain a lot about the weather, but it is because of the extremes that we have such diverse countryside. I appreciate it more now I am older. When I was younger I just wanted to leave!
