England's Beautiful Bluebells.
One of the great natural features in our area (which is in The Chilterns on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border of England) are the massive displays of bluebells which can be seen around Wendover Woods and Christmas Common.
And of course in many other woods around here although those two beautiful areas have the best showing we have come across.
There has to be millions of these bluebells carpettng the woods and they seem to increase and spread further every year. This is especially true since in recent times people have stopped digging them up and taking them home.
The bluebells on display each year at Cowleaze Woods in The Chiltern Hills are amazing - the whole woodland and increasingly adjoining woods have now been taken over by them and there are lots of paths
around for short strolls or much longer walks.

Bluebells in the wild can become quite substantial strong plants which eventually really dominate an area. Generally where there is fairly rough open ground then nettles soon take over and little else has any chance of growing. However there are for instance several
areas around Copgrove Woods where the huge beds of nettles have been completely displaced by bluebells - with only a few wood anenomes allowed to co-exist with them.
