'A Rite of Spring'

'A Rite of Spring'

Our native bluebells are a common indicator species for ancient woodland and underneath the newly forming leaf canopy, filling the air with a faint and heady, honey smell, they are the 'May Magnificat' of the poet Gerald Manley Hopkins. The walk through woodlands in search of their arrival is very much a rite of spring, the bluebell is a symbol of constancy and in folklore they are the 'fairy bells' that ring out to call the fairies together.
