Looks fabulous!

I'm lucky just to find one or two!

Usually only a dozen or so.

This is in the Dare Valley Country Park, (about 5 minutes from my front door)it is mainly reclaimed mining/industrial land.
The wardens have been leaving this piece of damp marshland uncut and pretty much left to its own devices. This is only the second year that it's been left and it's really blooming!
