These wild flowers were photographed in early July at the northern end of The Chilterns on a short walk to Ivinghoe Beacon – Pyramidal Orchid, Common Spotted orchid, Greater Knapweed, Self Heal, Agrimony, Goatsbeard, Mignonette, Dropwort and Clustered Bellflower. Ivinghoe Beacon is located on The Ridgeway which is an ancient track that runs through the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty AONB. The chalk grasslands along this route provide a wonderful habitat for wild flowers which are abundant in July. The flowers shown here are not rare but easy to see and photograph.
