Blue Belles

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

As with most of the spring flowers this year, the bluebells have put on a wonderful show, if rather shortlived. Here are a selection of images of the bluebells around Broomy Inclosure and Great Linford Inclosure. Sadly, a leak in my petrol tank rendered me practically immobile and my visit to Broomy was on an evening early on in the show and I was not able to return. I’ll just have to hope that they’re as good next year.

Early in the season, but already the bluebells are putting on a show

Difficult to photograph and with poor light, but this little wood within the grounds of Broomy lodge are carpeted with the blue stuff
