Cotswolds splendor

SUNDAY: Although we had a late start, the long summer day meant that we had no problem going for a 7 mile walk in the Cotswold Hills and still had plenty of evening too.

At last the woodlands are now in full flower with white ramsoms and bluebells.  The male orange-tip butterflies were zooming around, defending territories and buzzing passing females.  Early purple orchids were standing tall amongst the yellow archangel and dog's mercury under the closing canopy.
