The Spanish Bluebell is a charming little thing that prospers around the house here. It was here when I arrived, and it is still here, where
it is more or less welcome. Unfortunately, it hybridises with the native Bluebells that grow in the fields around and the hybrids have to be prevented from escaping.
This pink version of the species is by far the prettiest, in my opinion - the blue is just a second rate Bluebell, and the white might as well be the three cornered leek
that grows so abundantly with it.
