The bluebell wood
Bluebells carpet the woodland floor
Packed so tightly that insects tip-toe
Softly and quietly between them.
Their beauty unlocks a woodland door
There are many magical things in life, and bluebell woods definitely make that list. They are such delicate plants and it’s such a delight seeing swathes of them turn a woodland floor that special blue. It was once said that fairies would ring the bells of the bluebells to lure children alone into the wood. We’ve checked all our woods, and there are no evil fairies anymore, just nice ones behind the tea table!
Scotland’s Gardens Scheme is delighted to share so many lovely bluebell gardens and woodlands:
