The sweet scent of Bluebells




























































Bluebells, Hyacinthoides non-scripta or Coinnle corra, are in full bloom right now. They come out just after the spring flowers and before my beloved Foxgloves. A gentle sweet scent is released as as you walk through them. Today it is warm with a light breeze and brings back those childhood memories of long days and playing out in the meadows.

I also discovered  another fabulous website called wildflowersofireland.net a labour of love and a great resource.
