Spotted Orchids – 9th June

The Spotted Orchids are showing well now and are flowering all over the site. The dry spring may well have affected them as the flower spikes are a little smaller than usual. The Marsh Orchids are beginning to go over now but the Spotted/Marsh hybrids are looking very strong. Unfortunately the Bee Orchids have crashed this year and I have only managed to find about nine plants so far. The Pyramidal Orchids are also down on previous years. PS.
