I've discovered a new foothpath that I hadn't noticed before despite walking past it many times; once over the stile you're into the most beautiful wildflower meadow and I've really enjoyed going up there with Barry over the last week. It's so pretty especially on these sunny evenings and it's full of wildflowers, butterflies and bees.
I took my camera along the other day to try and get a few of the butterflies - Barry is a pain in the backside though and every time I crouched down quietly to try and photograph the butterflies he'd come bumbling along as if to say "whatcha doing Mum?!" and the butterflies would disperse quite quickly. Eventually he got side-tracked running through the long grass on the hunt for rabbits so I managed to get a few snaps.
Pyramidial Orchid I believe?
I'll be back with more blog posts soon...
