Irish Bluebells in the Woodland

Bluebells in an Irish Woodland Bluebells in an Irish Woodland Darren McLoughlin

Bluebells Hyacinthoides non-scripta are a common sight throughout Ireland in late spring every year, particularly in woodlands.

Here in Sligo the whole woodland floor is carpeted with blue from the native wildflowers, rocks and trees are covered with bright green moss under a canopy of fresh green beech leaves.

 

A once mighty tree stands proud of the floor, its stump reaching only a few feet over the blue.

Bluebells are one of a landscape photographer's favourite subjects and for good reason, their delicate appearance adding blue to an already colourful scene.
