Sunday's Nature Watch

Wow - another sunny day here! A pic of a wildflower growing by the roadside, (a Northern Marsh-orchid according to the books and this website) which I took this morning. We're having a lazy Sunday today and enjoying that rare thing called sunshine - we do get it sometimes you know!

Hope you're having a relaxing Sunday wherever you are - back with more crafty 'nonsense' through the week!

Cheerio an Drasda

(The flower is called 'Mogairlean Purpaidh' in Gaelic, if you can get your tongue round that one!)
