Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Though bitingly cold the views are breathtaking are they not. I togged up today and went out and take photos of the hoar frost on the remaining fungi and the grasses, stones, trees - oh so much to photograph it fascinates me, nature's art at its best, even on the inside of my windows -

Re: A walk to the caves of Brent Scar & Attermire Scar

I am definitely not an expert, but recently I had very similar, if not almost identical orchid ID'd as Fragrant Orchid - google it and I think you will find it looks pretty much the same. This is the one I got ID on
