I wandered around taking photographs and spotted four different varieties. This blog seems to be turning into a wild flower blog but these were just too beautiful not to share the photos. I'm not very confidant with orchid identification but with the help of my trusty flower book " The Concise British Flora in Colour " by W Keble Martin ( I have owned this book since I was six) and looking at photographs on The Hardy Orchid Society website I hope I have got the names right.
This one is the Burnt Tip Orchid.
The Common Spotted Orchid
The Fragrant Orchid
Lastly, the Pyramidal Orchid
They are such beautiful wild flowers, a definite bonus on our Sunday afternoon walk.
