Photo 366 (110) "Bluebells."

One of the not very many bluebells in my garden. Usually, by now, there would have been a reasonable number but I fear that the weather's been causing some problems.
I went bluebell hunting at Ashridge the other week with Gerry (Laurel Steinbeck) and Chris ( Lobsterboy) and there were none to be found there either.
Also, there aren't any shots of bluebells being uploaded to the galleries, at least, not in the numbers that I'd expect to be seeing buy now, so I've a feeling that it might just be a bad year for them altogether.

I was out last night in a wood that normally has a poor display and I was surprised as it was carpeted with them, so maybe they're just coming up at different times in different places.

Apparently my sister has plenty of blue, white and pink bells in her garden but all hints that she might like to leave some in the jamjar full of water I keep round the back of the house has fallen on deaf ears.

Hi Pete,
I live on the edge of 'Blows Downs' in Dunstable and there's a small clearing in a wooded area on top of the hill that comes alive with bluebells for about two weeks of the year. Rather originally, it's known as 'Bluebell Wood.'
I've visited in previous years with groups of children from the school where I used to work. We always knew when to go because we'd hear it on the local grapevine but this year, I've heard nothing.
Also, being so close to Ashridge, our bluebells usually coincide with theirs but I'm hearing nothing from that direction either.
Perhaps I need to pack my tripod and dog and climb the hill myself.

Ali, there's about a dozen, maybe fewer, in my garden. Just straightforward (Spanisdh, not English) blue ones. Ordinarily, I'd have quite a large clump of them.
