Has anyone seen any bluebells in fairly large quantities yet?
I know that it's perhaps a bit early in the year but all of the other spring flowers are in bloom yet, so far, I haven't seen any bluebells.
There's an area of woodland close to where I live and work known (predictably!) as "Bluebell Wood" which becomes a sea of them for about two weeks each spring. As soon as I know they're there, some colleagues and I take groups of children up onto the downs to see them. (I work at a school.)
The problem is, if we don't know they're out, we might miss them.

Just the odd one or too here.
I drove through the countryside between Maidstone and Ashford in Kent today and saw lots in different wooded areas.
loads down around Babbacombe and the areas down to the Devon / Cornwall borders 10 days or so ago.
Just a few showing around the Bournemouth area at the moment
At Basildon house there were plenty to see last Tuesday, I should image they should be at their best around now.
National Trust has a bluebell map, there might be some near you. I think they are starting to come out. I plan to go out next weekend to Ashridge Estate on the hunt.
I think I'm going to have to climb the hill and take a look for myself since there aren't any at all showing here just yet.
I didn't know there was such a thing as a 'bluebell map,' I'll have a look for it.
As for 'Ashridge,' if that's the one near Dunstable, then I know it. I normally use it as a yardstick to gauge when the bluebells should be out here.
Had a quick look at Ashridge's Dockey wood. Next Sunday I reckon for a full bloom. Nuff said.
I'll be there from about 3.00pm
Lack of transport prevents me from getting to Ashridge but Docky Wood is always mentioned around here (I live in Dunstable) when the bluebells are out.
When they're there, they're usually out in our 'Bluebell Wood.'
Bren, if you want me to pop round and pick you up, that's no problem. I'll even drop you home again afterwards if you behave yourself.
Just drop me a PM with your post code and address. I plan to get there about 3.00 - 3.30pm but I'll only be coming from two miles away.
do you want to come pick me up from South Wakes, Gerry?
bluebells around me in South Bucks are beginning to show well and Dockey wood this weekend should start to be in it's prime; beware you will not be alone there.

Are you going PJ?
If I go it will be very early in the morning but even then there will be a few photographers creeping through the undergrowth
They've been out in my garden in south devon for a couple of weeks - unusually early.
I seem to have even more this year as well.
