Bluebells on hillside -sign of lost woodland
On east side of Ewe Hill, near Grobdale of Girthon farm at roughly NX 617 638 on slope of Ewe Hill [had GPS so could have given 10 fig map ref if had presence of mind to note it...] found patches of bluebells growing through dead bracken.
Checked with my brother Kenneth and he said the bracken helps conserve bluebells - but both would originally have grown under tree cover.
How long do bluebells survive after the trees have gone? And a quick google search has not given a quick answer. I have posted the photo taken this morning - click to enlarge.
