Passing the Ghyll Brow meadow saxifrage pasture a glance suggested the flowers were over. But there they are. It's simply that grasses have grown tall above them. And ox-eye daisies and buttercups are more showy.
Recently, someone asked me what the tall blue flowers near the Mushroom Shelter were. I had not seen any. At the moment the only blues I can think of are milkwort, a tiny flower that comes in different intensities of blue. Then I suddenly came upon the mystery flowers being thrashed this way and that in the wind so my camera struggled to hold them in-frame and to focus.
Greater butterfly orchids begin to flower. And I found a great fat common spotted orchid. I like the pollinator's view of a flower and here it is for the common spotted orchid. Too cold and windy for most pollinators today. So far, this isn't much of a summer for bees and butterflies.
