June 2021 - Some Highland Flowers

Dwarf Cornel

We photographed a few flowers during our recent holiday in Braemar. Some were identified with the aid of an excellent book - 'Wild Flowers of the North Highlands of Scotland', by Ken Butler and Ken Crossan. Whilst we weren't in the 'North Highlands' many of the plants in the book are distributed over areas that extend further south.

Our pictures, especially mine, are of variable quality, but I've enjoyed composing this flowery interlude. Please let me know if you spot an incorrect caption, and remember, you can view the images as a slideshow by clicking on one of them if you are using a PC.
