If You Go Down to the Woods Today…

With the onset of Spring, shady floors in British woodlands burst into colour. A veritable carpet in shades of blue is there to reward all who venture into the woods at this time of the year. Indeed, swathes of bluebells are a classic image of British springtime, and it is estimated that over half of the world’s bluebells are found in the UK.

Unfortunately, they aren’t with us for long so make the most of them: by the end of May, they’ll be just a memory (or a promise for next year).
