One of the features that Emmett’s Gardens are renowned for is their bluebell display. When we went there was swathes of bluebells standing to attention. I think they are the most beautiful of all the spring flowers.

At times I get so angry, especially knowing that they can take years to recover, when I see dogs and humans ploughing through the bluebells. In our local woods, there are signs practically begging people to take care and not trample on the bluebells… but some people just ignore those signs and plough straight through them to get the shot they want. When we walk our dog in bluebell season, we make sure he keeps to the paths.
I would hate to see these beautiful flowers disappear from out wooded areas, and that is exactly what could happen if they get too trampled upon.
