Bluebells and Cow Parsley
I spotted my first bluebell of the year a couple of weeks ago. Six days ago I returned to see how they were getting on and there were many more appearing.
This morning I went to find them before opening up the studio.
There is a carpet of blue now!
I paused for a minute and did some quick studies in the A6 sketchbook I'd put in my coat pocket.
I photographed nearly every species I saw in bloom / unfurling / with new leaves opening! I love this time of year - the hedgerows are literally bursting with colour and newness.
I spotted my first flowering cow parsley of the year too, and quickly sketched that too before heading back to the studio to wrap orders and write my newsletter!
Oh, and if you are a bluebell fan too, you might like my Bluebell greeting card -
Or perhaps a Bluebell enamel mug?
