  • Floral Notes

    The English bluebell carpets the woodland floor with its pretty blue flowers from April to May. In the old English 'Calendar of Flowers' it is dedicated to St. George, the patron saint of England, whose feast day falls on 23rd April.

     

    The bluebell is a symbol of constancy, gratitude, luck, kindness and everlasting love and is the birthday flower for those born on 30th September.

     

    An old English name for the bluebell is ‘hare-bell’ and a legend tells us how the flower came by this name; when three fairies damaged their wings in a battle against the pixies, a hare carried them swiftly to safety. As reward the Fairy Queen filled the woods with these blue bell-flowers that have rung ever since to warn the hare and his descendants of approaching danger. If you listen carefully while walking in the woods, you may just hear them!
