Bluebells on the Hills

Bluebells above Jubilee Drive

The bluebells are late this year – they are usually out in full bloom for the last week in April, but the appalling long cold winter has put them behind, like just about everything else. However, they have been well worth waiting for. I went for a walk on the Malvern Hills this afternoon, along with about half of Malverm it felt like, to have a look at the bluebells on the Herefordshire side of the hills, above Jubilee Drive. They are absolutely spectacular – a purple haze stretching into the distance. They smelled heavenly too – like hyacinths but more subtle.
