Purple Mountain Flower

12th March 2017
              We've just arrived home from our yearly visit to pen-y-ghent to find the Purple Mountain Saxifrage. Some clumps were opening but the full show will probably be around 10 days time. The weather was blustery with low cloud but not cold 8c. The saxifrage grows down to sea level in Northern Greenland and up to 10,000ft in the Alps and Rockies, it really is a true arctic alpine flower.
