Bluebell Wild Flowers

There are two main types of wildflower Bluebell in the UK The English and the Spanish. The English is much more graceful and pendulous, less clumped together than the Spanish which is more stately and upright. The Spanish Bluebell is commonly found in gardens but can be invasive and interbreed with the English variety. This has lead to the English Bluebell to become a threatened flower. The other threat to English Bluebells is that some people dig and pick the flowers in their natural environment. It is illegal to pick them if you see them in their ordinary state.

 

I found the English in delightful wooded shade near a shimmering river 1st week in Spring May 2006. The Spanish species was growing at the side of a city path at the same time.

I am painting a picture 6feet by 4feet of a landscape of early morning frost on the landscape and rape seed growing in fields and wild primroses and bluebells with the Saxon church tower filling the fields around, the most beautiful church in England Up-Marden West Sussex.

 

Sounds like a magical place : Icarus y2u

having grown up near some deserted, old, gardens, i have always known about bluebells and where they grow, but, i never read in articles about the white and pink varieties of this wonderful flower, why?
