Cherry blossom season has passed, and the tulips are out—but there’s another breathtaking flower in the midst of its peak bloom: the bluebells.
In the language of flowers, bluebells signify gratitude and humility. These delicate trumpet-shaped flowers populate in shady, moist, and cool temperatures, perfect in forests during the springtime. And they propagate very easily, so if there are a few then chances are there must be more nearby.
That’s where Bull Run Regional Park in Virginia comes into play!
At Bull Run Regional Park, a sea of bluebells cover the ground, coining it the “Bluebell Trail” to all those who cross it. The Regional Park offers the perfect environment for these marvelous flowers to grow because of its shady lush forest, rocky soil, and moist ground from the nearby Cub Run River.
And now is the perfect time to see them! They bloom yearly in the spring from March to June, but now is peak bloom! Walking through this 1.5 mile trail is the perfect outdoor activity to enjoy the seasonably sunny weather.
Bull Run Regional Park, located at 7700 Bull Run Drive, is open daily from sunrise to sunset.
