Bluebells of Different Colours in a Cottage Garden

White, pink and blue bluebells in a spring garden

I often walk by this sweet cottage garden and pause to take a picture. I don’t think it is ever prettier than in spring when the bluebells are out in force, mixed with daisy type flowers I’d say were osteospermums were they not so early, and classic wildflowers such as forget-me-nots.

For an indulgent week or two, white bluebells gleam in the sunshine, a few pink ones stake their claim for our attention and the blue ones form a soft background blur. While nothing beats a bluebell wood, passing this little corner always makes me smile.

  1. I am happy to have found you again. I know I was following you but as sometimes happens with WordPress you fell off my follow list. So I have followed you again!😀

  2. Beautiful bluebells. I would smile too if I walked past this pop of colour, all the more so as I’ve never seen 3 different bluebell flower colours together in one spot before.

    1. I was pleased to see all three together. I would guess that the pink ones are the rarest, but there is a small garden nearby with lots of them.

  3. Just like our bluebonnets, which are known for blue, but also appear in white, pink, and yellow. I learned only this year that there are pink hyacinths, too. Nature’s variety never fails to please, and if I were walking past this bit of variety, I’d be smiling, too.

    1. I have some blue ones that have completely swamped my tiny garden. Each year I think of digging them out and then when they flower again, I think what wonderful plants they are and haven’t the heart.

        1. I perhaps could. A lot of the gardens round here have them – you probably only need two or three to create a gardenful over time. They’re one bulb that loves our conditions. It’s hard to find the heart to dig up bluebells, even cultivated ones, and I suppose that’s just how it should be.
