Clouds and sunlight, which still penetrates the countless leaves, provide many shades of light blue and deep purple. Lighter and darker spots move across the sea of bluebells. Hoverflies and bumblebees have already been able to pollinate many bluebells. In some flowers the ovary is already clearly swelling. At the end of June, beginning of July, the black seeds will fall and hopefully can grow into new bluebells. But it takes about 4 to 5 years from a seed to a plant with flowers. In the first years, the small bulb can only form some leaves. The peak of flowering has passed, but for those who don’t have to come from too far, a visit to the forest remains worthwhile and a wonderful spring trip.
