Bluebells

garden1

I was in the middle of processing a whole pile of images from about six weeks ago for the Streets Project for today’s blog. I have not been feeling well for a few days, so that will wait until tomorrow as I am not concentrating properly. I have noticed that many of my friends on FB have been posting photos of bluebells in the woods, which this year are doing brilliantly because of the mild wet winter. I really ought to get out to some of the woods nearby, probably only a mile away, before they go. However in the corner of my patch of dust and dirt I have my own small woodland in a pot and like the woods the bluebells have done very well. Sometimes just a limited view a detail is as beautiful as the broad expanse. While I was out there I also noticed that the strawberries on the wall are beginning to form well, so looks like a good year. I wonder if my ‘garden’ can become included in my Flat Life Project, I will have to consider that deeply…

  1. I fgound some bluebell bulbs dumped in an alley in Hanley while I was in Tunstall, I saved them and put them in an old bread tin with Tunstall soil, the travelled to Italy under my driving seat and I then planted them in the garden last year and this year we had one spike of English bluebell, hopefully they’ll multiply.

  2. They like damp shade. There were wonderful woods full of them when I lived in Mid Wales and they were mixed with wild garlic which knocked your socks off, colours right through from white to deep deep blue.
