The Virginia Bluebells grow on the Sinks Trail deep in the Monte Sano State Park here in Huntsville Alabama. It’s a good 30 minute hike downhill to the trail but that was my goal today. I passed two sets of hikers coming up the long trail and both said you need to go look at the Bluebells. I thanked them and told them that was exactly my plan.
The Virginia Bluebells cover the ground following a dry creek bed in this lovely spot on the trail. I found myself there in quiet solitude among the blooms and the bees.
I found many other things blooming in and among the bluebells.
These violets were growing in the middle of the trail.
They are nowhere else in the park. But they flourish here. Growing and blooming for a quick few weeks and then gone for the year.
I was blessed by spending a quiet hour among them.
