Scarlet Pimpernel

Last year while walking the dogs round Mathon I came across a really pretty little red flower. I was surprised to learn it was a scarlet pimpernel.

I did spot some growing a few weeks back ,but the photos I took weren’t in focus. Since then I’ve been wandering around looking at the ground searching for tiny red flowers. I’d given up as I thought they must be passed.

I was really surprised on Sunday to spot some. This time I had my Lensbaby velvet 56 lens which is great for macro shots. The challenge was getting the shots before the dogs trampled all over them.

My favourites are shown below.
