A book is soon to be published about Mull wild flower walks, and although we haven’t seen a copy yet, I understand Treshnish gets a mention! The person who is writing the book is extremely knowledgable and we are looking forward to adding it to our library. My current favourite identification book is “Wild flowers of Coll and Tiree”, as so many flowers found on Coll and Tiree are also found here, and it saves you wading through pages and pages of flowers which don’t grow here!
At the end of the day I headed off for a walk with my camera. The light looked promising for photographing the wild flowers along the shore below the house. I found lots of heath pea, my first heath spotted orchid, lots of early purple orchids, sun dazzled sea pinks, water avens, tiny milkwort and lousewort.
There are more photographs from today here.
