Walking around the farm with a measuring wheel gives an opportunity to see what is normally rushed by. At this time of year we are generally busy fertilizer spreading or working our way through paperwork and it is all too easy to miss the splendor of the woodland Bluebells apart from a blur of purple from the tractor seat. This year I was determined to take a closer look at the flower that is leading a poll as the nations favourite…
The Bluebell is the sweetest, of all the woodland flowers,
But picked and transported, it only lasts for hours.
It’s the woodlands Wilton carpet, a veritable purple haze,
Normally seen from a tractor seat on fertilizer days!
On its own, tiny bells, so delicate and petite,
A host of them is needed to make the scene complete.
So forget your wanderings ‘all lonely as a cloud,’
And shout out for Bluebells that make the Nation proud!
