Violet Helleborine

The Violet Helleborines at Coalbrookdale should be at their best about now. A week ago only a few were in flower, but still the roadside site was better than ever. There was a bit of a scramble to see the clump of 10 spikes, but more than I have seen before along the roadside. In the woodland trails no so good, but there was a nice specimen with virtually no pigmentation. It looked almost crystalline.
