A while back we took a walk through the local countryside and as with most walks, I took my camera with. You never know when there will be something to capture or if something interesting happens. On this occasion I kind off knew that there would be bluebells in one part of the woods we walk in, so I was prepared. One of the sure tell signs that the winter is over, is that the bluebells start making their appearance. Though by saying it signals that winter is over, does not mean that the cold weather is gone. Unfortunately the cold weather persisted for a few more weeks afterwards, making it really hard to tell that winter was coming to an end. I would highly recommend that when the time is right to take a stroll out into nature and capture what is around. I am fortunate to live in a very beautiful part of the country and still enjoy watching the seasons change. Nature does put on a great show all year round.
In case you did not know, the Hyacinthoides non-scripta is particularly associated with ancient woodlands, though it can be found in open habitats in the western regions and is protected under UK law. It can be found in teh Atlantics areas, all the way from north-western Spain to the British Isles.
Below is a small selection of the photos I took. I hope you like them.
