Some bellflowers on Wolstonbury Hill, 29 July 2019


The "Pride of Sussex", the county flower of Sussex
It was fabulous on Wolstonbury Hill on 29 July 2019.  The butterflies, flowers and other insects were glorious.  The county flower, Phytema tenerum, the "Pride of Sussex" was spectacular.  It is in the Bellflower family as is the Harebell.
