Bluebells on the beach

Bluebells eh? They’re everywhere at this time of year… but even so it was a surprise for The Ranger when some popped up yesterday on Sandown Beach!

Bluebells on the beach

These are growing behind a row of beach huts, in the sand. You can see some sand at the far end of the huts, and the sea is just visible in the distance. I was working at the time doing something else so had to take a quick snap on the council phone – but if you don’t believe me, go and look for yourself! I’ve always known that Sandown Beach is a great place, but never yet thought of promoting it as a place to look for bluebells. See exactly where they were after the jump:
