PORTLAND FLOWER SHOW

At the moment the beach road connecting our little Isle of Portland to mainland Britain is awash with colour!



There are various amazing wild flowers going mad on the side of Chesil Beach, and the scratchy bits of land between the beach and the busy road.

As the constant traffic rushes by, you can wonder at Portland's very own flower show.
A skylark, which we often see around there, was high above making a racket, while obviously appreciating the floral carpet below!

Fortunately there is a handy board near the visitor centre, telling you what these flowers are!



The one you really notice the most is the vast stretch of pink Thrift ... 



Looking east towards Portland harbour, with Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door in the distance.
 

 
And here is some of the bright and cheerful Yellow-Horned Poppies ...



 
Make the most of this special show while it lasts!
