The purples have it...

IF you live near an area with limestone or chalk bedrock it's worth hunting out patches of ungrazed, permanent pasture at this time of year, as the late summer colours can be spectacular.

The scabiouses and knapweeds are interspersed with old yellow rattle flowers, seeding grasses, white dropwort, blue harebell and orchids gone to seed - this provides a wonderful sea of purples and muted browns.


  1. Lovely photos - the last two are so pretty, and I love the purple/pinky hues of these flowers. - Tasha xxx

  2. Hi Tasha - always nice to have a new follower. Could have done with some sun on this day, but ran out of patience!


Have your say...
