There is a feeling of enfolding something precious - blooms ready to burst forth. We are witness to a miracle.

Beautiful. As if we have a secret glimpse into the miracle of the birth of Spring. The green petals are protecting and comforting those baby bluebells about to grow and spring forth into bloom.
