Description:

The first flowering bluebells in my local wood, last year they were at this stage on the 29/3. Strangely though, because a lot of growth is earlier this year, there are no signs of the violets or wood anemones that were in flower by the 21.3 last year. I've seen them on iSpot but not here.
Also the first two photos show the English bluebell but I'm almost certain the third is the Spanish variety not seen in the wood last year. See ringed photos (blue - English / red - Spanish?) to show proximity.
