My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Common Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) a bulbous perennial plant.

Found in Atlantic areas from north western Spain to the British Isles. The plant is associated with ancient woodland and is regarded as a sign of spring. This display of Bluebells was photographed on a woodland section of Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England.

On Top of a Tree Stump

This is my day 19 contribution to Becky’s April Square Tops photo challenge.

A European Badger on top of a tree stump in some Cheshire woodland. By its body position I’m guessing it had just been scratching. Photographed in the spring judging by the Bluebells growing on the bank behind the animal.
