The weather has been changeable – first sunny, then rain, then some sun again and then more rain – all in one day. Then in the late afternoon the sun came out again and we went for a walk in Middleton Wood, which is near Ilkley in North Yorkshire.
The woods were carpeted with bluebells, which looked especially attractive with the sun slanting through the trees in the late afternoon.
For a close-up photograph of an English bluebell showing how the flowers all grow on one side of the stem, see our bluebell article here. In contrast, the flowers of the Spanish bluebell grow all around the stem, so the plant grows upright.
We will be adding these photographs to our ecard collection within the next week.
We will also be adding photographs from our India trip to our ecard collection, so look out for those also.
