Common Centuary 17/07/2014

One of my favourites among the wild flowers here at the cottage is this Common Centuary.  I had never seen one before although they are not rare, for me a great find.  We had a about half a dozen plants above the meadow for a couple of years then nothing the next.  Thinking they had vanished, I was really pleased to see a few plants reappear this summer.   Fingers crossed for next….

One of my favourite insect photos of this summer was this lucky shot of a Small Heath Butterfly.
