SPOTTED ORCHID AND MINI STRAWBERRIES.

 Today we had a nice walk around Southwater Country Park and spotted this unfamiliar flower.
Upon asking one of the Rangers what it was we were told it was a Spotted Orchid, such a pretty flower and not growing just anywhere I'm told



Also I just noticed these little rascals hiding in the grass,  mini strawberries.


Nice for decorating a pud, although I didn't pick any.
