Home flowers My Bluebell Park

I thought it was time to take another walk in ‘my park’ and no better time to do it than now, when the bluebells are in bloom. Of course you know by now that it’s not my personal park (I do have to share it with others) but I like to think of it as an extension of my garden as it’s only a 10 minute walk from my home and it’s a place we use often.

When it’s bluebell time the park is covered with them especially the woodland areas.

This year bluebell time is earlier than usual. It’s usually mid May before the park looks like this but the weather has been so good lately that the bluebells have decided to join us sooner than they normally do!

They really do put on a beautiful show!

I love how from distance it looks like a blue carpet.

Of course I couldn’t admire these pretty little flowers without having a go at making some of my own bluebells !!!

I do hope you all had a lovely Easter and a good start to the new week. We all have a wedding to look forward to this week, how exciting, I can’t wait!!! 🙂

It’s a good job I just put my Royal Wedding post on my blog Vivienne as my next is also about bluebells…you and I are often on the same wave length-LOL. Your Park looks beautiful as always, I love looking at it during the differents seasons. The bluebells are so early this year, we visited Hatchlands Park yesterday and the drifts were awesome.Enjoy the wedding celebrations…I can’t wait to see that dress!

Viv, your bluebells are beautiful! What a great job! And your park is so gorgeous! What a lovely place to have so close! I love bluebells so much and am still waiting not so patiently for some flowers!

How lucky to have your own special bluebell park… I always consider our conservation area to be an extension of our garden – after all it is just outside our back gate.

Bluebells are one of my all time fave flowers, we planted some bulbs in our garden a few years ago, and I always smile when I look at them.
I love your crocheted blue bells 🙂

Oh I love the little bluebells – I can just picture cute fairies in that park.

Beautiful bluebell pictures – your park is looking so lovely this season! I never tire of the pleasure of seeing masses of bluebells growing together. Your own little bluebells are very sweet too! I’m looking forward to the Royal Wedding as well…not long now!

Such beautiful bluebells! It’s nice to know there’s that shade of green – any shade of green – somewhere outside in the world today. 😉

Gill April 26, 2011 - 11:05 pm

A blue haze in the woods is always glorious. Your park looks stunning at this time of year Vivienne so do your knitted bluebells.

It’s spooky but I saw my first wild bluebells yesterday when I took off on a shopping trip, not seen any out near the house yet.
Bluebell woods are one of my favourite sights so it was lovely to see your park pictures.
Knitted bluebells, now that’s something I haven’t seen before! They look fab.

I didn’t know they were called bluebells. I really love the word/name bluebells! Thanks for sharing always such nice information and pictures! Love the bluebell crochet!

Mia April 27, 2011 - 7:20 pm

I love “your” park, Viv! It almost feels like I would have visited it as I have seen in in autumn, winter, spring and I CANNOT WAIT the summer-shots! And the wedding… we’re getting really exited here too, and digi-box ready to record it all as my sis is working when it’s on live *darn* but we’ll enjoy it together in the evening!

Happy week!

Yours,
Mia

What an absolutely dreamy landscape. I feel quite refreshed just gazing at the lovely photos!

I have one clump of bluebells that grow just outside the side of my house. Years and years ago (we’re probably going back well over 50 years) before the housing estate was built where I live it was just nothing but fields and I’m thinking the bluebells are a legacy of the fields. I get flowers which smell oniony/garlicky growing on my front lawn but I’m not sure if it’s wild garlic., I’m a bit scared to try them in case I poison myself!!

How wonderful to have such a beautiful park only 10 minutes from your home…….lovely pictures and knitted bluebells.

Sorry, I did mean crochet bluebells, too much knitting going on here at the moment and it’s taken over completely.

Bluebell is a beautiful word in english I think – and suits the pretty, pretty flower! The chrochet version is just as beautiful! 🙂

julie April 28, 2011 - 2:03 pm

Your bluebell pictures are gorgeous Vivienne – aren’t we lucky to have such lovely wild flowers? You captured them perfectly in knit too – which is a good thing as the real ones don’t last long enough!

Pam April 29, 2011 - 12:32 pm

Bluebells are just the perfect shade of blue aren’t they? Such gorgeous pictures Vivienne.
