The UK will see the mercury “drop” as the days go by, but temperatures will remain above average throughout the week, the Met Office said.

Bellflowers typically bloom from mid-April to late May, depending on the weather, which means there are still a few weeks to enjoy their beauty.

If the spring is mild they tend to flower early and they often first appear in the South West of Britain where it is a bit warmer than the rest of the UK.

A flower with strong folk connections, bluebells are said to ring at dawn to summon fairies to the woods.

The UK has over half of the world’s population of bluebells.
