What is flowering now…can be rather special!

With this cold spring most seed germination is slow and delayed and established wild plants are flowering later than normal but nevertheless there is plenty to see in the woodlands and hedgerows and also some special things flowering in open fields and downland.  I took a few photos yesterday of some of my favourite and rather secretive plants flowering at this time of year:

Early Spider Orchids a secret of the south downs
Green-winged Orchids come in various colours
More Green-winged Orchids …aren’t they gorgeous!

             You can purchase my Green-winged Orchid seed on the ‘Rarities page’

Adder’s tongue fern, another secret of old meadows
There is so much to find out there, a lot of it can be unexpected…any land that supports wild flowers can contain secrets at different times of the year, for you to discover!
