Feel the Gladness of May

Every year at this time the bluebells come out along the Greenbelt. The blooms last for about a week, creating a sea of blue on the forest floor and a cloud of fragrance that hangs in the air. It is intoxicating to the senses, and an annual event not to be missed. This year there has been some minor flooding from a recent rain storm and the trails have turned to thick mud. Nonetheless, it was worth getting feet caked with goo to 'feel the blue' again. These photos were taken in the early evening at a primitive park called "The Bird Sanctuary." You can click on the photos to enlarge them.

Oh, how pretty these are, we don't have them where I live, but I think the lillies of the valley are just about to bloom.
