Have you noticed that nature’s palette is more vivid and luminous after a summer rain?

Today, on my walk along the river bank, my attention was drawn to the many colours (and shapes) of the humble English Bluebell. It’s not just a straight bell and it is not just blue: it is stripy, curly and sometimes wavy in hues of green, pale pink, purple and sometimes pure white.

Beautiful little things individually, I’m patiently waiting for a whole dense carpet of them bursting into flower before the bracken smothers the view on a local set-aside. It’s spectacular and I’ll share a picture if I catch it.
