Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Orchids, Tissington Well Dressing and Chatsworth Horse Trials

A busy weekend in these parts, and the sun is shining, warmly. It makes a welcome change from the recent cold and the frosty nights.

We are giving the Horse Trials a miss this year, but plan to walk over to Tissington on Tuesday with some more very good friends, Lorna and James (Lorna was our bridesmaid) who are coming to stay.

Meanwhile, John and I walked up Parwich Hill this afternoon and came across some beautiful Parwich orchids. Sadly, for some reason we can’t upload photos onto the blog at the moment, so you’ll have to see it on our website Home Page instead by clicking on the Parwich Orchid link above.

By the way, we proudly call it the Parwich Orchid but its proper name is probably rather more mundane. John has tried to look it up and it appears to be ‘the Purple Orchid’; the Latin name to us remains a mystery – hope someone can help.
