English Bluebells

These beauties have been slow to emerge as they were underwater for a while. It's been quite wet and cool so they are just getting started. Posted for Amy.

They've as good as finished up here, i love our local bluebell wood. I'm slowly managing to eradicate the masses of accumulated spanish bluebells which the previous owner presumably planted. They're a real pain in the butt. Those thousands of little bulblets everywhere I dig

LOL..M! take them out and parcel them into little gift packets and give them to visitors! or put them on a table at the gate with a sign "Free to a good home!" LOL...

Thanks for the sugestion Lori but nobody here wants them, as they are a seriously agressive hybrid which everybody is now trying to get rid of. They hybridize with the native english species which is now in real danger of being wiped out.
