Today the bluebells are already putting on a good show even though they are not fully open. By next week this whole area (Chalet Wood) will be a carpet of blue. The bells of the (English) Bluebell grow on one side of the stem which causes the stem to lean over (see photo 4) and this distinguishes it from the Spanish Bluebell (H. hispanica). A point of interest, in Scotland they call Campanula rotundifolia (Harebell to you and me) the Bluebell.
