As well as the wild life, the wild flowers made this a wonderful walk.

Irises bloom everywhere.

We’re just learning about wild flowers here, so if anyone knows what these are then please tell us.

I have just found this online and think it is a calopogon – a member of the orchid family. It is very beautiful.

These  strange flowers are the insectivorous Pitcher Plants. The vase shaped flower is filled with a sweetened water to attract insects. The insects fly in but cannot get out again!

You can see here how prolific these flowers are in this protected area.

This was a truly memorable walk and I have still loads of flower photos I haven’t put on here. Probably this is enough for now.

They are beautiful, it’s so nice seeing wild flowers everywhere. I’m really looking forward to having my very own garden next summer, maybe we can incorporate some wild flowers into it.
