This limestone pavement in Ribblesdale was superb for wildflowers.
As you can see the weather wasn't so good and that is Ingleborough Hill brooding in the background.

More Harebells because you can't see too many Harebells!
It was surprising to see Fragrant Orchids still in full flower in August.
We visited the quarry at gone six o'clock in the evening and the Common Blues were going to roost.
