  1. That’s really lovely, are you getting some of this heatwave up there.

    • The orchids here are stunning and common; so I was delighted when they finally appeared. After the abyssmal June weather, a 16C one day heat wave was phenomenal, we even had the mid-afternoon thunderstorm! If you want to feel really cheerful about the English summer you can consult the Askenish station weather blog. Askernish is about 18 miles to the south.

      • Just read it, hopefully things can only get better!

  2. Beautiful 👌🏻

    • I can’t resist photographing them. D. incarnata comes in such a wide variety of colours and is endlessly fascinating. The dactylorhiza orchids all flower pretty much in succession, but as our summers (?) are so short they overlap and hybridise. This is a botanists nightmare, but we get some very spectacular orchids!

      • New plants keep arriving in my garden. Alas, no orchids, thanks for sharing yours! 😊

        • Orchids are a bit finnicky about where they will grow – but always delighted to share ours.

  3. Beautiful. I love wild orchids.

    • We are truely spoilt here, they may be late, but seeing orchids in such abundance, even on the roadside verges is such a joy!

      • My friend has Pyramidal Orchids in her field and I have never seen the grow as abundantly as this year. Wonderful!

        • Such a perfectly formed flower, not too common here but always a delight to find.

  4. Very pretty and very welcome, regardless of its tardiness, I am sure!

    • I was really beginning to wonder whether they were going to appear at all.
