Last week my family and I got out to discover the Revelin Moss Gill trail at Whinlatter Forest, and while I shared some of the amazing bees and butterflies I spotted while there last Friday, which you can see here, I wanted to wait to share more of the flora which I was lucky enough to spot along the trail, this week!
Stunning foxgloves. I love the dotted pattern inside the petals.
Beautiful heather which was dotted all along the banks of the river which winds it's way along the trail. I love that delicate, lilac shade.
One of my Mum's favourite flowers. I think these are the oxeye daisies, those tall, larger versison and they were all along the river bank. They're some of my favourite flowers because they just look so bright and happy.
Lovely, purple knapweed - which seemed to be the favourite of the butterflies in my previous post!
Of course, the beautiful, I believe, fly agaric in all it's spotted red and white glory. They remind me of the classic fairytale mushroom.
These two mushrooms were just huddled together. I'm not as good at identifying mushrooms so if there are any brilliant mycologists feel free to let me know what they are!
Two more little mushrooms huddled together. I'm always fascinated by the different shapes and colours you can find.
Of course, with it being a Friday, it's Photo Friday and I'm linking up with Jen!
Have a wonderful weekend!
