It would be criminal to mow this beauty away, Annette: and you have seized the opportunity of recording it for posterity with such detail and vibrant but I'm sure very natural colours.
Very fine floral photography.

How lovely to see one of these, how lucky you are, and you will know where they are next year and can avoid mowing the area again.
