Walking on a carpet of flowers at St Govans
|Walking on a carpet of wild flowers.|
This post continues the blog concerning our adventures in Pembrokeshire over a recent weekend.
After Stack Rocks and a pit stop at the Ye Olde Worlde Cafe at Bosherton ( I adore the Cream Scones with a coffee) Paul and I found ourselves going to church. Well not quite, its a very small chapel named St Govans. It recently featured in the BBC Dark Materials series.

On this occasion we did not enter the chapel but said our prayers from the overlooking clifftop and headed off on what would turn out to be a very long walk along the coastal path back towards Stack Rocks.
Once again as we began our trek I was amazed at the wild flowers growing all of the clifftops.
Paul and I tried to identify what we could of the flora and came to the conclusion that there was -
- Thrift ( Pink)
- Sea Companion ( White)
- Red Campion ( Pink)
- Spring Squil ( Purple/Lavender coloured)
- Bird Foots Trefoil
- Vetch (Purple and Red)
- Green Winged Orchid ( Purple)
