Bluebell wood

We went for a walk in some nearby woods on Sunday to see the Bluebells. They are always something special and this year excelled themselves in their blue and perfumed beauty.

I had wrongly thought that the French for Bluebell is myosotis but that is actually the Forget-me-not. It always wrong-foots me because as a former medical secretary I immediately think of myositis - which is the word for "inflammation of muscle tissue which causes pain, tenderness and weakness". Not the same thing at all.
