Interchange Orchids

Coryton Interchange

The Coryton interchange is about a mile in circumference with footpaths and cycle paths crossing it.  It the middle is a a nature reserve and at this time of year full of wildflowers.  It gets largely left to itself  due to access and location and it is managed very sympathetically by the Council. 

This morning I walked across it on the way from Taffs Well to Whitchurch and the flowers were  blooming.  One of the stars of the show is the  pyramidal orchid which thrives here.  I only had my phone camera but it captured the scene well enough.

Not much blogging lately, plenty of cycling though and later on in the week we have our club ride from Plymouth back to Cardiff, so hopefully I'll have some pictures of that.
