It seems spring has sprung in the woods around DC; the Virginia bluebells are nodding their dainty little heads. Bull Run Regional Park near Centreville has a huge crop of these soft, floppy flowers, and the blooms are predicted to peak next week.
On Sunday at 2 p.m., as they’ve done for the past 30-odd years, park naturalists and rangers will hold a special Bluebell Walk.
This sounds wonderful. I’m imagining a Disney movie, with folks wearing Easter bonnets and their Sunday best, strolling among the wildflowers and singing little melodies along with the birds. Ah, spring!
