One of the great joys of spring in Virginia is the brief show of bluebells. Every year I wait eagerly for the few days when the bluebells peak along the river. This year I wondered if the day would ever come. It’s been so cold and gray.

Last Friday, we had an early dismissal. I was like a kid anticipating a birthday. I couldn’t concentrate on my work, so I packed up. I actually left early. It was 80 degrees, sunny, clear blue sky, and the bluebells were calling me. I couldn’t resist.

The reward was immeasurable. My eyes could hardly take it in. If the sight of such beauty were food, I would be stuffed for weeks. All I would ever need would be a little bit of blue.bluebells2018.jpg

    How beautiful your photo is! “If the sight of such beauty were food, I would be stuffed for weeks.” This is so true!

    I love bluebells and, even though I live in Wisconsin, I transplanted some Virginia Bluebells into my garden. Even here, their cheery blue blooms will be delightful. (We have snow on the ground right now…boo…so I have to wait a while.)
