"Hyacinthoides hispanica, the Spanish bluebell, is a spring-flowering bulbous perennial native to the Iberian Peninsula. It is one of around 11 species in the genus Hyacinthoides, others including the common bluebell in northwestern Europe, and the Italian bluebell further east in the Mediterranean region." - Wikipedia 
 

All about Spanish Bluebell Flowers

 

 

Subhash Sharma These blue bells not only look wonderful but have the message of ‘Humility, Everlasting Love’.Their lovely blue hue is also the colour of trust and responsibility. It is sincere, reserved and quiet, and doesn't like to make a fuss or draw attention.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.

I'd never heard of this garden, Roy... if those bluebells are representative of what's to see here, it must be a gorgeous place to visit.

Roy, I do not recall ever seeing Spanish Bluebells before; had a feeling I would love them as I so love Lilies-of-the-Valley.  And I did!
