The first Red Campion

Much of my photography serves as a diary recording or celebrating experiences and happenings, however small, as they occur.  Today’s picture belongs to this category.  Three days ago, beside the bridle way, I glimpsed the first red campion of the year, nestling beneath the young cow parsley.  At present it is alone, but no doubt it will soon be joined by others.  It may not be a technically accomplished photo but the joy it records was immense.
