Excellent pictures on both of these blogs of the coastal path - a very beautiful part of Britain. I hope you are enjoying yourself in Wales.
Do you know what those blue flowers are called, Withy? (cos i don't!). Saw some beautiful, delicate, small speckled pale lilac orchids yesterday, too. (at Strumble.)
I blush to admit that I don't, Chris.Loved our time in Wales, Rosie but back a week now.
Have never seen bluebells growing in an exposed area like that, and the drifts of Thrift are magnificent. Beautiful pictures Withy
The photos on both of the last posts are really good. When I read about this part of England this is what I imagine. The flower-covered cliffs are incredible.
Love these too, especially the second to the last one. That blue water and cliffs and the flowers. Thank you again Withy for posting.
Those tiny, blue flowers are called squills. They have an extremely long, white stem that reaches inches underground, but the flower sits only just on the surface. They have medicinal qualities particularly for chest infections, and there are several branded cough linctus that contain extract of squill. Once, while out on the coast path, I had to explain to someone that they were not 'some sort of Welsh daffodil' Doh!
