Brain Strain

I had intended to write more about our holiday, but I'm weary and my writing mojo has crawled off to sulk in a corner somewhere. The words aren't flowing today so instead please allow me to leave you with images of the beautiful wild orchids we've recently seen on walks in Somerset and Sussex. We truly live in a stunning country.

Common spotted in two colours.



Fragrant orchid


Pyramidal orchid


Bee orchid. On the close up you can even see the "eyes".




Greater Butterfly orchid


Perhaps the need for words and explanations wasn't there after all!
