I think these are wild irises in the photo below. Hadn't expected to find them growing in the middle of a wood.
And this is a charcoal burner. Strange to think that at one time these would have been a very common sight in our woodlands, now they are remarkable because they are unusual.

There were two tired dogs and two equally tired humans who had well and truly earnt their lunches by the time we got home. I felt entitled to a post-lunch ice cream, safe in the knowledge that after all that walking it couldn't possibly be a "second on the lips a lifetime on the hips" moment. Suffice to say my legs ached suitably the next day, but I can't wait to go back next week and see how much more the bluebells have come on.
