I hope you get to see some, they are gone from here.I'm sure I heard that Shetland was closer to the Arctic Circle than it is to England, though I may have misremembered.


I have just checked, your right.
We are about equidistant with the North of England

Thanks Boris, finally got my bluebell fix!


This is Captainís Wood at Sudbourne in Suffolk. Itís one of the best displays weíve seen there, though my photos donít do it justice. Even saw some deer in the distance as well  :)  And surprisingly there was nobody about, only saw others when we were walking away.

Lovely pictures.  We are hoping to get to our favourite Bluebell wood this afternoon.  Just waiting for the gas man to finish off.

Lovely walk through the Bluebell wood East of Burator reservoir this evening.  The valley bellow the Dam is such a magical place on a beautiful sunny spring evening.

Quite a lot of cars parked up around the Dam, but we had the woods the waterfall and the Bluebells to ourselves.

I guess all the local joggers stick to the flat road around.  :)

These woods are about 20 mins walk from my house.  They are private property with 2 rights of way through them.  However, the wicked landowner has put in extra paths and the bridges across the streams as well as benches to lure the unwary walker into sitting down to enjoy the spectacle, thereby increasing their chances of catching you enjoying yourself.  Gad, they are cunning these landowners!

Not the same as walking through a field of bluebells, but I have a couple growing at the bottom of my garden.



I do like the bluebell.

I do try to get up to Hackfall Woods in North Yorkshire, if I get the timing right the bluebells can be in abundance, but have missed them the past few years.
Better a rainy hill day than a sunny work day.

Not the same, but stunning when you get close up and personal... O0 O0

Spotted I small clump of Bluebells growing on Fur tor yesterday.  I have never noticed them before.  I was amazed they could survive up there. I guess there is just enough shelter for them in their little rock cave.  I'll post up a pic when I download my camera.

I can't Edit my original post unfortunately.

Any way Here are the pictures of Blue Bells hiding from the rigours of Dartmoor, I had hoped to link into it from Sunday's walk out to Fur Tor. There are no others for miles in any direction that I know of.
