A quick Sunday morning visit to see what was flowering in the pasture above the old quarry. The first highlight wasn’t floral.
Male and female Common Blue butterflies – they did some impressive synchronised flying then got together on the nettles.
I tried to get a “wildflowerhour” picture of this scabious with Lomonds in the background, but it looks a bit odd.
I didn’t notice the yellow flower photobomb in the background…still, it was a lovely Scabious.
There were still a few orchids in flower. Why is it impossible to get a good picture? Why is the grass behind it in focus? Why does the orchid look as if it’s laughing at me?
On a calmer note, the roadside was bursting with daisies.
Further down, near the junction, I had to stop for this wonderful road verge.
Why can’t they all be like this?
And the bonus was the poppy field.
