There are no fields of bluebells in Massachusetts.
I cannot tell you how many photos I have seen with lush woodlands of bluebells, blankets of blue edging on purple that feels like such a magical sign that the ground has come back alive after an all-too long winter. I went in search of such a place, only to realize that here, we have bluets.
Bluets are the bluebell’s daintier, less scraggly cousin. But they too are blue. Really blue. While they can blanket the ground, it’s far more likely that they are too cold to want to fully open. But, it doesn’t matter. With such a bright splash of color covering a seemingly dead, desaturated ground, you can help but grab some gorgeous photos.
A perfectly timed sunset does’t hurt either. Spring in New England is fleeting. But moments like this are worth capturing to save for later.
