Photographer's Note

Here you see a wonderful and amazing shot that I took on a forest in England, which was carpeted by an amazing sea of bluebells, standing there alone in that surreal place in total silence felt so magic and eerie, what else can I say? but amazing.

The Bluebell is a West-European bulb, which may bloom according to local climate and conditions, from the beginning of April to the end of May. It can be found throughout the British Isles in woods and hedgerows, I took this shot on the way to Eastbourne near the famous winnie the pooh village.

Britain is one of the Worlds strongholds for the Bluebell and we are are lucky to have many Bluebell woods left. The April/May spectacle of seeing a wood not only greening, but also 'blueing' is one of the joys of the year, on the hedgerow banks, the Bluebells often mix with red/pink Campions and white Cow Parsley in a display of National colours against a green background.

It is not surprising that the Bluebell is a popular flowers and in a recent survey search amongst 25.000 people by the charity "Plant life” for the most representative flower of various counties and districts, it was chosen so often, that it should probably rank side by side with the Rose as the national flower.In spite of its apparent abundance in parts of the country, conservationists are worried that the distinct British Bluebell is threatened, because it is hybridising freely with the Spanish Bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica), which was introduced in this country as a garden flower.
