Bluebells

Bluebells along with other spring flowers have been late this year, however during May we have enjoyed walking through bluebell woods on several of our guided walks both in the Hope Valley area, and in the Derbyshire Dales. 

 

Even yesterday almost into June, Bow Wood near Lea Bridge was still carpeted with these beautiful blue flowers, and on Thursday, we strolled through meadows containing bluebells near to Bretton Clough.

 

They usually prefer shady areas such as woodland but do occasionally grow in sunlit areas.

 

In England, wild bluebells are protected by law and it is an offence to remove bulbs or trade in bluebell plants or seeds.
