Around this time of year, usually a bit earlier, photographers seem to get obsessed with searching out photos of bluebells. Often, at least for me, the results are disappointing. Last year failed for me because although I found some good locations, the bluebells seemed to bloom is a bit of a ‘trickle’. No doubt I can blame the weather for that.
This year, I decided not to even bother with bluebell photographs. The weather this year has made them bloom late. Will this, however, mean that their sudden rush to reproduce will result in some bumper displays? Although I decided not to bother with them this year, a couple of days ago I stumbled on a copse of trees, where there seemed to be some potential for bluebell photos in a few days time. They were just starting to come out, and they were interspersed with ferns, which I thought might add to the display.
Any ideas on how many days to give them?
