Take a stroll with me ... into a frothy sea of native wildflowers.
As the breeze blows the nodding bluebell flowers en masse they take on the appearance of hazy blue waves breaking on the woodland floor. A sweet perfume infuses the air as if it has even permeated the tree trunks and with ever greater waves of intensity as the breeze ebbs to and fro through the leafy branches.

I've finally started to make video's again :) +Heidi Anne Morris

Galanthus nivalis
She stood out ...alone.  Surrounded by the soft, dreamy blur of white flowers.  While a gentle scent  of honey lingered in the air.

Centaurea cyanus | Cornflower | Bachelor's button
Late summer in among the cornflowers with their long slender stems and their azure blue flowers.
If you're a tea drinker here in the UK and have ever tasted Twinings 'Lady Grey' tea you mightn't have realised that cornflower petals are used to make that blend of tea.
