That's not a bluebell!

 

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..

  2. Showers? That's a shame. The sun shone all day here. Those are like the orchids we get in the bluebells.
