Meadow

We didn't hold out much hope of a good walk this morning because the skies were threatening and a few light showers fell on us.  But having been caught in a couple of these, the sky cleared a bit and we pressed on to walk around Shipley Hill.  The wild-flower meadow which we crossed as we climbed the hill, was full to bursting with flowers.  Most of these seemed to be members of the pea family...
... White Clover, Red Clover, Birds-foot Trefoil, Tufted Vetch to name but four.  Also adding their colour were Common Sorrel, Buttercups and many species of grass.  Here is a larger picture of the meadow.  Click it for the full-size version.
