What a sparkling find to make in the back lane Ronnie.

Shame our Scottish ones are being swamped though.

A very beautiful photo, I like the background that you used, it makes a warm and natural contrast. Still, love the color, Ronnie.
Strangely, I didn't know that there are some Spanish invitations, what's the difference? Do they have wider leaves than the local ones?

I have to say they are pretty, just wish they were not quite so prolific - I love our native bluebells with their distinctive 'droopy' look best of all though.
Lovely bright blue against the fence Ronnie.

Very beautiful but it's a shame they are taking over from our traditional Blue Bells, Excellent image as always,

Invaders they might be but they are very beautiful and you have captured them very well. I guess you didn't have any choice about the background but you were fortunate as it sets them off to perfection.

The difference between the English and Spanish Bluebell is clearly shown here -

English V Spanish

Background is fine, unobtrusived but sets the location.
It looks like there is room at the back to slip a piece of sheet or card if you wanted to. Just thinking of alternatives Smile

A beautiful armada of bluebells, well detailed and contrasting well with the wooden background, Ronnie!
I'm glad Lynne provided details of the difference between the two quite different species!

They are quite lovely and must be hardier than the Scottish ones if they are taking over.

Well you've certainly made them look amazing Ronnie. I've never heard of French Bluebells, but I'd much rather our much loved traditional ones.

I took some photo's of these the other week Ronnie....Didnt know they were Spanish, not that I expected them to say "Hola".... Wink
They look so much sturdier and chunkier than the British Bluebells.

Thank you for putting the photo on, Ronnie. I learnt something that I didn't know before.

Nothing 'homespun' here, Ronnie Wink
Countryfile broadcast a documentary last week on Spanish v English (may have been a repeat).
It's a fine image and I like the natural backdrop of the timber fence. Your next upload beats it though Wink

Ronnie, the flowers stand out well against the wood, and Ike the fact that dof is all the way through the image.......as the lovely little flowers stand out in there own right.

Your right they are. Not got quite the same beauty (or bloom size) as our own British ones. paul

I have some of these growing in my garden, don't know how they got there as i didn't plant them! I must say that I prefer our own native ones, they are much more colourful and far prettier
