Dorset pink poppy fields at sunrise 2022

Sunrise and mist: pink poppy field and a Dorset church.

In August 2017 I went to London to have a look around the now derelict Highgate railway station. Afterwards, whilst wandering around Highgate, I chanced upon a memorial garden outside George Michael’s house that had been created by fans. The garden is looked after by them and was created on land that belonged to George.

In the first photo you can see George’s Highgate house in the background; also his Range Rover, still parked there eight months after his death on Christmas Day 2016.

The George Michael Memorial Garden has since been dismantled by his family. However, the sad death of his sister, Melanie, on Christmas Day 2019, also at a young age, prompted me to search out these photos and post them here.

Dorset’s Wild Orchids 2022

We are lucky in Dorset because we have what is possibly the best site for early spider-orchids in the UK. Ophrys sphegodes is also the first orchid to flower each year, heralding the start of the ‘orchid season.’ This year, I also found a woodcock orchid x Fly orchid hybrid, growing on a steep, Dorset hillside.
