It was a spectacular summer day as we started up the mountain to The Mammaries.
The flowers are still two weeks late – they should be at this stage by the middle of July. But in Long Meadow the green orchids are at last flowering – these are displayed against the lushious leaves of the false hellibore.
And the lupins are finally making a show.
Harry is photogenic wherever he chooses to be.
Another flower just starting to show is the small-flowered paintbrush. It is a very intense purple colour.
At the top of Long Meadow we reached the treeline and the view of The Mammaries
