  1. This is a lovely photo. And I’d only recently spotted some, or their close cousins, in Wales where they grow in the wild. I fell in love with them as a child, but it was only the recent trip that reminded me of same. And now your wonderful photos. Serendipity πŸ™‚

  2. Serendipity indeed! Our walk this morning took us past a lake that had oodles of these beauties by the water. Tiny orchids too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely colour! And I spotted the little bug underneath 😊 I read above that Olympus replaced your shutter system – how is it going now?

  4. Beautiful pictures. Love the little ant πŸ™‚
    On my own blog I replied to your comment, but as I am not sure you will read that I will repeat it here:
    I would be happy to join in with your garden challenges. I love your blog and was already planning to come back to it regularly.
    I discovered all of Ed’s blogs have been totally deleted. Hope nothing bad happend to him.
