The Living Forest (362) : A sea of Bluebells

Each year in april, during a period of 2 weeks, the Belgian forest, named Hallerbos, is completely covered by dense carpets of millions (yes millions !) of lavender-blue, bell-shaped bluebells.

The view of this floral carpet is truly memorable and impressive.
As far as the eye can see, there are bluebells and bluebells and bluebells…….uncountable.

A natural wonder of the finest kind !

Dutch name : Wilde Hyacint (ook Boshyacint genoemd)
German name : Atlantische Hasenglöckchen
Latin name : Hyacinthoides non-scripta

Location : 'Hallerbos' at Halle, Belgium

***

The Hallerbos is getting more and more famous in the world.

Last year about 14000 nature lovers came from all over the planet especially to see and admire the unique sea of bluebells in this forest.
This year more than 40000 foreign visitors are expected.

During my visit I met photographers from Alaska, New Zealand, South Africa, etc...
