This image by George Nash was taken in Eastnor, Hereforshire, and shows a carpet of bluebells typical of late spring
Bluebells are found in many British woodlands, and transform the ground into a carpet of blue for a few weeks every year. They tend to appear in April or May, taking the opportunity to grow and bloom before the trees grow their full summer foliage and block sunlight from reaching the ground.
This photo was submitted by George Nash or Ledbury, and was taken in nearby Eastnor. It's most famous for Eastnor Castle, which was built in the 19th centrury, but styled to look like a medieval fortification. It's appeared in a number of television programs, and the grounds host a number of festivals.
