The BBC reports that the long cold winter has held up the flowering of bluebells by several weeks. Now displays are expected around mid-May rather than through April as we're been used to. They may also be shorter burst of colour and more patchy, which is a shame for those that look forward to a spring walk through woods carpeted with bluebells.

The picture above was taken on the Ashridge Estate in the Chiltern hills, on 29th April 2007. Hopefully similar views will be available for 2010.
