Spanish Bluebells in Full Bloom at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

The Bluebell Wood has become a popular attraction at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in the spring. Designed by Robert Hyland, it is a woodland planting of more than 40,000 Spanish bluebells (Hyacinthoides hispanica 'Excelsior') that bloom in late April through mid-May. It is shaded by the beech, birch, oak, and elm tree collection of the garden.

Beautiful shots! I just posted how Bluebell Wood is my happy place - much needed since I'm deep cleaning my office. I just wished they remained in bloom longer.
