Path Squiggles

Woodland path wends through a carpet of Common Bluebells photographed in Spring (late April) 2009. 70% of all Common Bluebells are found in Great Britain. They are a protected species and the bulbs may not be removed or sold. The Native (to the UK) Common Bluebell readily hybridises with the Spanish Bluebell (introduced by gardeners). The hybrids frequently out-compete the native Bluebells.

 

Taken at or near the Great Woods of Stanmer Park, East Sussex - part of South Downs National Park.
