Meadow

Following on from yesterday's Orchid-fest, we continue with some views across the meadows and the flowers which share the name.  First, the Meadow Buttercups (Ranunculus acris).  I have mentioned these quite often over the last few weeks, but really, we have never seen so many as we have this year.  The meadows are full of them.
Peeking out above the Buttercups of this particular meadow were a small herd of cattle almost lost among the yellow blooms.
Keeping the meadow theme, we then came across a large patch of Meadow Cranesbill (Geranium pratense).  These beautiful, blue geraniums make quite a show among the grass and are certainly very popular with the bees and hoverflies.
Just to finish today, some more of those Meadow Buttercups, but this time, interspersed with some more orchids.
