The beauty of late summer’s wild flowers

We had a walk in Drummin wood and along the shores of Lough Cullen earlier this weekend. The wood has a new track, or should I say old track which has been re-opened and resurfaced. There were some lovely large specimens of hazel and holly.

Along the shores of Lough Cullen there was a wealth of wild flowers. It may be late summer but there was no shortage of colour. I just wanted to share a little of the beauty.

Grass of Parnassus was a plant I had to look up, as it is one I was not familiar with. In order to get a detailed photo I asked my husband to hold onto the flower head. It was really exquisite (it’s worth clicking on the photo to get a closer look).

And finally of course the lovely view over the lake.

      We’ve had lots of rain too – I think we’ve missed out on summer this year and going straight for autumn! Glad you enjoyed the walk:)

    Both you and Eliza live i paradise! Thank you for sharing the beauty:-)
    Too often we forget the wildflowers that must be enjoyed + treasured for so many of them are in trouble. I have tried to add some to my small city lot, but I wish I had more space, so I could grow more:-) Great photos!

    Don’t get all of your blogs so I go exploring. What wonderful flowers – didn’t realise that wild mint had such a beautiful flower. What a joy to see these gentle creations in their natural setting.
