Astounding bluebells

We had never seen a display of bluebells as beautiful as this, we were mesmerised by what we stumbled upon and all as a result of not really having a plan on where we were driving other than to explore the Malvern Hills.

We took a left just before reaching the car park for British Camp, an Iron Age fort (later Roman) in the Malverns. I could see that there were some wonderful landscapes down that way and we had some time to spare. It wasn’t long before we saw this spectacle, millions (probably no exaggeration) of bluebells, a carpet of violet-blue blotted across the hillside slope. We parked up in what looked roughly like a lay-by and I naturally reached for my camera.

We thought we had it to ourselves but not for long, as car after car turned up, people with their cameras were also feasting their lenses on nature’s carpet. What a sight? Never seen anything as impressive as this.
