Bluebells are Starting to Bloom

Yesterday I had some free time between physical therapy and picking up Charlie at doggy daycare so I headed to Front Royal because I heard that the Virginia bluebells were beginning to bloom along the river. I have photographed them before at Eastham Park.

There is a turtle in the first picture. Can you find it?

I found plenty of buds on bluebell plants, but only a few blossoms. For the picture, I held my phone upside down to get the lens close to the ground.

The paved path at Eastham Park is very popular. Within a few minutes you may see families, runners, people with dogs, cyclists, fishermen, and even a photographer or two.


  1. The Bluebells are lovely and I always enjoy the river views. Have a great weekend.

  2. YES! I saw the turtle! Love the photo.

  3. ...beautiful, I saw my first snowdrops yesterday.

  4. I see the turtle at the far left of the log and the bluebells are simply gorgeous.
