Bluebells

Not far from us, on the sandy shore of a creek that regularly floods, there is a wood full of bluebells - Mertensia viginica.   

For a very short time in April or early May, the bluebells bloom and it's as if the sky has come down to drink at the water's edge.

And then they are gone until next year.

  2. I love bluebells! I want to sit in the middle of that bluebell patch and gaze at the river until you come get me for some home grown honey on toast.
