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 !
