“Grasmere Bluebells” 3/5 Designed by Nicola Slaney
“Grasmere Bluebells” 3/5 Designed by Nicola Slaney. Spring emerges from its battle with winter in the Lake District to rise victorious in a royal carpet of purple, bringing with it a sense of rejuvenation and hope. It is thought that around half of the world’s population of the humble bluebells are to be found in the UK. Captured in this design is one of the two small lakes of Grasmere and Rydal Water, separated by a woodland through which the River Rothay babbles merrily. These woods are carpeted with bluebells in spring, and in Grasmere Bluebells they bow their heads gracefully under a canopy of clouded, greenish-blue trees as the deep waters and the colours of natural world around them appear to diffuse into sleepy cottages and awaken the soul.
