The Difference in the Timing of the Bluebells

 It is true that the Bluebells are earlier this year, same woodlands, the first picture taken today, the second was taken 16th May 2013.  In the second picture as you can see the trees are in leaf whereas today they are not, and also in the second picture the ferns are appearing.  I think this year by the 16th May the Bluebells will have gone to seed.

 Because the trees have not come into leaf yet the colour of the bluebells really shone in the sunlight.
