Brown's Hill Quarry

Visited this delightful little nature reserve at Holwell in Leicestershire at the weekend. These thistles were magnificent and majestic. I love the halo of stamen radiating from the central flower head. As my sister said, "A touch of the Angie Lewin's". We were a bit too early to catch a Bee Orchid but there was a lovely show of Common Spotted Orchids in a variety of shades and patterns.
