Wildflower walks around Coniston, Lake District

August is here so it can only mean one thing – the annual trip to the Lakes with Rich’s family!

As they live down south we don’t get to see them as often as we’d like, so we always make sure we book time off at this time of year.

Each year we stay in a different town, and this time it was Coniston. It’s where we stayed on my first annual Ames trip and is one of my favourite places to visit.

The grat thing about staying in Coniston is that there’s plenty of walks to do from the town, so you can leave the car at the cottage most days.

Today we walked to Torver and back, via the water and the forest. In between a couple of downpours I managed to get a few shots of different wildflowers.

Bell Heather/Cross-leaved Heath (I still get muddled up with these so if anyone can let me know in the comments that’d be great!)
