what aboout Cardamine pratensis? looks nuffin like a cuckoo
Cuckoo contraceptives? In the 50s a lot of cuckoos had to give up their chicks conceived out of wedlock for adoption. This development can only be a good thing.
your mum may have been lying to you quimmy
I dunno. What she said about using poppers when taking it up the arse was spot on.
blimey! she said that!!!!
The woods in Priory Park get lots of bluebells.
In fact isn't part of it called Bluebell Wood?
These are shots I took in my local park last year (which aren't very good):
Somebody with more photographic talent than me took these shots in June at daybreak:
just thought i would report they are out and about on the North Downs and surrounds, early this year
out early in s wales too. i have a week's camping in bluebell woods in devon week after next
I was saying that just this past weekend, Dan
I've just checked a map to see where the north downs are.
Searching for instant bluebell gratification - no car, want simple train ride, minimal walking and bang, bluebells. I utterly failed to find that last year and was most miffed.
out in my front garden
Two days ago in a park, all on their own. Not so much a carpet as a slip mat.
I know they are out up on the woods on the North Downs Way around Reigate
eta (its walkable from Reigate Station, albeit up a big hill)
National Trust are doing this map thing this year as well
Zenie - mine too
We went looking about 10 days ago, and found none, now they are coming right out, lovely time of year.
seems (to me anyway) there are a lot of wild flowers around this year in the hedgerows etc as well.
I might dig some up to take with me..... You're allowed to if it's in your own garden aren't you?
good question. probably not but who will know!
You really should consider doing a longer walk. The North Downs offer tons of magnificent walking, as do the Chilterns, another place to find bluebells close to London.
Really nice bluebell wood in Sandridge , St Albans area - (buses OK from centre of town , 20 mins on FCC from St Pancras ) - ancient oakwood which is being massivly extended by new planting as part of the Heartland oak forest campaign.
The garden's full of 'em, snowdrops too. As are the local woods.
Horsell Common has a glade that looks like blue smoke
Yeah, the woods are utterly carpeted in them round here. It's soooooo beautiful, like a hazy blue mist.
Bluebells are out in the southern bit of Max Roach Park.
Beautiful bluebells in Banstead Woods
Some panoramas here
Bluebells on the Purbeck Way over Easter weekend...
That's a lovely scene...
It was so beautiful. My husband took that photo on his phone - quite amazed at the results!
thought i would give this my annual bump!
went for a walk along the North Downs Way yesterday between Reigate and Dorking and the Bluebells are waking up and a few are beginning to show. Early again this year, I suppose due to the warm weather.
They aren't in full show yet though.
They're in for a shock on Wednesday!
Bluebells.. am i too late? Any recommendations of where to find them near south london?
