Some views from a wildflower walk in Cumbria

On a sunny June day I went with three other women, one of whom was our guide, to look at wild flowers growing in a limestone area near Kendal. Most of the photos I took were of wild flowers, some of which I shared on Twitter for #WildflowerHour.

The views from the plateau along which we walked were stunning.

This post is the first since early in 2020 describing a place I have visited, which was the original purpose of this blog. Hopefully there will be more similar posts in the future.

July CMMC close-up

This week Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) is for a close-up or macro.

I have chosen a photo I took yesterday of a rose growing in a hedgerow. It is a cropped photo, which I had taken from as close as I was able to reach. The shadows of the stamens can be seen.
