Every flower here is under threat because once again the bulldozers and chain saws have entered Prehen Woods (February 2012) to destroy another corner of the woods to make way for more houses.

A local campaign: No to housing development in Prehen Woods has a Facebook page and an online petition

This single wild bluebell was photographed in Prehen Woods, Derry. This drooping head of blue flowers is the classic native bluebell. [ Botanical Name: Hyacinthoides non-scripta ]

Prehen Woods is a small wooded parkland area close to Derry City, N. Ireland. It has taken constant campaigning by local residents to protect the woods from threats of clearance for housing.

It has always had a wonderful display of Spring flowers. These bluebells are at their best for only a few days each year.

Having missed them last year I was delighted to catch them this time around.

There are three types of Bluebell found in the wild in Ireland. These Native Bluebell, the Spanish Bluebell (Botanical name: Hyacinthoides hispanica) and a hybrid of the two.

The cream coloured anthers visible in these bluebells is one of the features that allows the native bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) to be distinguished from the Spanish bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica).


 
Part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .
