Spotting a carpet of bluebells in a woodland is a highlight of any springtime walk in the countryside… The bluebell has been voted Britain’s favourite flower, and it’s clear why when you see a wood covered with these pretty flowers. Around half of the world’s bluebell woods are in the UK. They are an important part of its heritage and well worth a visit. Bluebells are a protected species so even though they look pretty, please do not pick them.
The Bluebell (Anne Bronte Poem):
A fine and subtle spirit dwells
In every little flower,
Each one its own sweet feeling breathes
With more or less of power.
There is a silent eloquence
In every wild bluebell
That fills my softened heart with bliss
That words could never tell.
