This year I hope to continue the success from my forays looking for orchids last year, with a slightly different emphasis and, hopefully a more scientific approach.
This year I will be looking for plants in 'winter-green' in other words orchids that keep some growth through the winter. Indeed my friend Rodger and I have already made a good start and it's only January. So far we have found Bee, Pyramidal, Green-winged and Autumn-ladies-tresses orchids and most excitingly, a solitary bog-orchid flower spike still attached to the 'tuber'.
This weekend were off on a little expedition to seek out Fly orchids, or at least try and find some, watch this space!
