If you have not been up for a while do think about coming soon.  The orchids are at their height and have spread more than ever before including colonising one of the paths which we have not had the heart to mow.  Quite glorious. It is also wonderful to see the number of butterflies, other winged creatures including bees and a dragonfly on Saturday.  The undergrowth is busy with life.  Well worth a quiet sit or stroll to take it all in before the full heat of summer burns off the vegetation.
