Fireweeds and Sheep

Another shot above Deep Dale.

Interestingly, the variety of pink flowers in this shot got their name because they proliferate on scorched ground. Apparently they only became a common site after 1945, where they flowered on bomb sites, and then passing trains blew the seeds across the country, so it goes....where they have become one of our most common flowers.
