Bluebells - just starting

They seem rather late, but finally the bluebells are beginning to bloom.  There are just a few, here and there, making tiny puddles of blue in the garden and local woodlands but it won't be too much longer before the puddles become ponds, the ponds become lakes and finally the lakes join up to make a sea of blue that covers the ground.

One of the treats of this year's cold spring has been the way in which the primroses are hanging on - giving us a beautiful display of bluebells and primroses together.
