The First Bluebells

Today, on the last day of March, I saw the first bluebells this spring. Pretty little things, they're growing in a sheltered spot near the daffodil walk in Cannizaro Park.

To find out when and where Britain's bluebells bloom, the National Trust has launched a Bluebell Watch map; you can record your own bluebell sightings via Twitter.

The National History Museum is also running a bluebell survey, which is focusing on on the timings when bluebell flowers first appear this year.
