It’s #WalkThisMay month and I have been trying out some different walking routes. It’s often on these paths you find the most interesting fauna and flora.
I came across beautiful carpets of bluebells during one of my woodland walks.
Their deep blue colour is a breathtaking sight stretching out beneath the slowly unfolding woodland canopy.
Bluebells flower from the middle of April to the end of May; producing nectar early in the season.
The bluebells nectar provides an important source of food for bees,🐝butterflies,🦋and other insects.🕷🦟
The bluebell is mainly found in Britain and Western Europe.
Areas of woodland where bluebells grow as wildflowers are often likely to have been in existence for hundreds of years and are categorised as ancient woodland.
If your interested in exploring your local area have a look at my page on walking for more information and ideas.👣
