June 23rd – A tired, grumpy recovery day. I set out mid afternoon to find something to cheer me up – no easy task in the grey and drizzle that prevailed: Such a shock after the bright, warm summer of the day before.
At Norton Bog, I found what I was looking for: The brightness of summer flowers around the small pool by the bypass.
Several varieties of orchid, devils paintbrush and birdsfoot trefoil mingled and competed to be the most vivid.
A lovely display that did indeed perk me up no end.
