On our way to Cornwall today we turned off the A30 to visit Castle Drogo - or rather for a cup of tea and a picnic in their car park as it was too showery for a proper visit.
The drive was lined with beautiful patches of Bluebells under the trees, but when I stopped to hop out and take a photo, the first flower I saw was this..
A very beautiful deep purple wild orchid. There were a few of them scattered through the bluebells..
Oh yes and we made it to Cornwall - here is a beach shot..a little late in the day, the light was fading fast..
