thank you for clairfying. in the US, I believe the things that we call 'bluebells' are a type of Lupine.
I always like to know what plants actually are, because the common/local names can be so misleading.
they're lovely.

The current latin name for English bluebells (of which these are) is Hyacinthoides non-scripta. They are also known as Scilla non-scripta. They are not to be confused with the Scottish bluebell, which is actually a harebell and a member of the campanula family :)
