Bluebells in Central London
Bluebells in Central London

I’m used to seeing bluebells in a more natural habitat – in a bosky wood. But here they are in the patch of ground surrounding this Victorian block of flats in Westminster.

I don’t usually walk this way, though I sometimes park in the Disabled bay further along the street. I was delighted to see this flash of colour,  a reminder that Spring has finally come.

When I’ve walked past before, the area in front of the apartments has been a mixture of tangled greenery interspersed with areas of dry earth. Lovely to be cheered up on my walk back from the bank.


  1. Always seems to me that bluebells isn’t a good name for them. They’re more like purple. And in any case, they make people feel happy rather than blue!
