Virginia Bluebells – Mertensia Virginica

By Pattyhankins @PattyHankins

Just as the blooming of the bluebonnets means spring in Texas – the blooming of the Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia Virginica) means the wildflowers and spring are here in the Washington DC area. I love photographing the Virginia Bluebells – they add such a bright splash of color to the woods in the spring. The bright green leaves and blue (and occasionaly a few pink) blossoms are a wonderful contrast to all the shades of brown.

Here are some of my favorite photos of Virginia Bluebells I’ve taken in recent years.
