"May week was in June!" - Summer Wildflowers

After our cold wet spring, the hedgerow plants are making up for lost time. The Blue-bells of spring are giving way to the showy wild flowers of summer. 

The wild, flag-irises often brighten up damp areas.

Common Foxglove, a particular favourite of bumble bees.

Purple haze. Flowering grasses give a lovely purple tint to this meadow on the Llyn Peninsula, with buttercups and flowering  dock or sorrel in the foreground.
