Amethyst torches

Here is a lovely photo by LavenderMoonGirl that reminds me of Butterfly bushes and make me long to be a hungry butterfly. And then the poem makes my butterfly heart sing. I hope the magic finds you this week.

Lavender Moon: Artist, Poet and Lover of Nature

pyramidal orchid

Pyramidal Orchids

Like Amethyst torches,

Glimmering high in

The chalk passes,

Where shimmering faeries

Dance to the sound

Of lyrical Skylarks.

I love these beautiful wild orchids (Anacamptis pyramidalis). On our walks it is often difficult not to walk on them!  These little magical torches of the fairy world are scattered over the chalky downs of the Chiltern hills.
