Blooming marvelous!

It's bluebell time in the woodlands of Kent, south east England.



They've just started to come to bloom, a few days and they'll be past their best. Right now though, they're in their glory, blue carpets everywhere.



No bluebells in my garden, but my pond plants have started to flower




and the very first of the aquilegias is out - isn't it stunning?



Their folk-name is Granny's bonnet, you can see why.

You are so lucky to have flowers blooming!! We will have to wait 3-4 weeks yet I'm sure. Supposed to be +9 today - not quite warm enough for flowers.

Love the bluebell forest shots, I can see faeries frolicking amongst the blooms!

Beautiful flowers! I have bluebells all through my garden (they seem to go where ever they want) but nothing like you have in your picture! enjoy!

Oh those bluebells just take my breath away!! "Up North" they're only still in bud, we're waiting for the glorious blue carpet to unfold very soon now, especially with the warm weather we're having at the moment (oops, need to pretend I haven't noticed or it may stop being nice...)
