A couple of weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to discover patches of bluebells on the top of Trencrom Hill. Today I went back to see how the then burgeoning foxgloves were faring.

I was not disappointed.

I was also delighted to find stonecrops (sedum) spreading out along the edges of the granite rocks, small clumps ofΒ tiny yellow (unknown) flowers, red curly dock, and golden grasses.

The rich purple spires rise above the waves of golden grasses contrasting against the bright green pastures below.

My neighbouring nature reserve just keeps on giving me pleasure.

  1. A lovely display of colourful foxgloves Jude. The header photo looks great!
    I was somewhat confused by that colour in the sky though. ‘Blue’ you say?
    I don’t think that’s allowed in Norfolk.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

  2. Pleasure upon pleasure, Jude. Including great photos – my favourite the one you describe so well: “The rich purple spires rise above the waves of golden grasses contrasting against the bright green pastures below.”
