Bluebells On the Corner

 The oaks and maples have barely begun to form leaf buds, but the bluebells spread among the roots are at their peak. I've always dreamed of walking through an English woodland carpeted in bluebells but my visits have been too early or too late. Honestly though, Virginia bluebells, with their curved stems and gracefully drooping clusters are more elegant than their stiffer British cousins. The bells sway silently in the breeze and their color mirrors the sky. I don’t miss that English woodland after all.
