Climb a Hill for 30 Days Wild



As I often do on a Friday I joined Crafty Green Boyfriend this lunchtime for a walk round Corstorphine Hill. The highlight today was seeing the common spotted orchids which are thriving this year!




Always lovely to see these beautiful flowers!

We were very pleased to be able to put into practice all we had learned from the recent rust fungus workshop by noticing this impressive nettle rust fungus

It was lovely to see these clovers and self heal flowers growing in front of the hotel
 
 
and attracting several bees (mostly common carders like the one below)

So it's a good season for the flowers and the bees but where are the bunnies that usually graze this hillside in front of the hotel?

We have a lot of self heal here, but common spotted orchids are not so common that I can ever find one.
