Wildflower walk

About 20 minutes’ drive from my home, there is a nature reserve that’s bursting with wildflowers this time of the year. I didn’t find any spider orchids today, but that simply means I have to go back again in a week or two. Here are some of the flowers on offer … and a nice little surprise at the end.
