Flowers in the Quarry

The other day I went for a walk in the quarry. It's quite a while since I went down there but this is always a lovely time of year. Although I expected to see lot of flowers I was very surprised to see these vibrant poppies.

A little patch of them has appeared on an area that was cleared in the winter.

I was not so suprised to find the usual orchids that are now going over.

This tiny milkwort was also widely spread through an adjoining meadow.

  1. The orchids are as beautiful as ever, even if starting to go over. That poppy is a spectacular imposter! I wonder whether the flower would remain the same if you collected the seed and planted in the garden?
