Cowpat gardening

Walking through the field the cows were in about 2 weeks ago.  This lush ring of flora hides a cow pat. Talk about natural fertiliser!

A pale lilac Self heal.

A delight to see a Six spot burnet moth on a Fragrant orchid.

A tidal stack.

Looking back to the boathouse.

Everywhere we looked there were orchids. I think these are Common spotted..

Whatever they are, they are common here.

It is bliss being out there at sunset.

Back in May we found a minute flower which no one seemed to definitely ID. Farmer thought it was Wild Angelica.  It had been growing on the cliffs of the Point, only 2 inches tall.  This was a bit taller than that, but very similar.  We saw several of this size down there, as well as tall ones.
