A trip to the peatbogs in May

We went to the peatbogs, Tourbieres, at Vendoire today to check out the restaurant down by the river. It was a fantastically sunny day. We cycled along the country roads listening to the sound of birds and frogs singing and looking out for the orchids which are in flower along the verges. Lots of Pyramidals and a few Fragrant orchids too with their vanilla perfume like night-scented stocks.

The restaurant proved to be a very enjoyable experience. They even offered a vegetarian option. The fresh asparagus starter was divine. As we ate we watched the wildlife around the pool and then after lunch we walked the nature trail around the peat bogs.

Then back to Lagland to relax by the pool and enjoy the scenery!
