Bluebells around a Beech (Fagus sylvatica) tree trunk
Native English bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) surround the smooth trunk of a native Beech tree (Fagus sylvatica) in Southrey Wood, Lincolnshire.
The Lincolnshire Limewoods are scattered remnants of ancient woodland, the largest area of woodland dominated by Small-leaved Lime in Britain. The species was thought to have been introduced to Britain but is now considered to have been native.
