Early Purple Orchid

One of the joys of gardening, when a beautiful plant is placed in just the right location by nature herself… See this early purple orchid.

Eyes in the back of my Head

Orchid no. 2 (2019) and orchid no. 1 (2018)

I noticed yesterday that an Early Purple Orchid had appeared in the marginals in our garden pond, and photographed it. Then I remembered that it had appeared in exactly the same place as one had last year – good news – it’s become a resident orchid!

I looked back at my post at this time of year 2018, and found I’d photographed and posted the first orchid on June 4th. Well, it’s 31st May 2019 and the second orchid, newly flowered, looks larger and healthier than the first.

Not just that – there’s another small one appearing nearby too.
