    Nice picture as always from you Theresa but I loathe those flowers, I dig and dig and dig and they still persist! :>)

      Turns out that Spanish bluebells propagate by sideways runners rather than simple bulb division!  So they do have to be taken up and then re-set.  Sigh – time to start digging on my hard…

    Early spring flowers, along with tree blossoms, are vital for pollinators, and such a welcome sight to my eyes after winter, let em grow!

      You can come on over then and dig these persistent buggers up and plant in your flower beds. I have plenty of other pollen producing plants/flowers in my yard that the bees won’t even miss these! :>)

        Ha! Well if they are such persistent buggers, why not just try to embrace their blue beauty? ;)

        I know they can grow invasively, but I’m rather fond of them. They make lovely little bouquets too.

    I recently saw a hummingbird sipping from Spanish bluebells. Audubon verified that, yes, they do use the flowers. It reconciles me somewhat to them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
