Batty Piece, wild Orchids. Pyramidal and Green Winged, and Broomrape
Having recently discovered a Green Winged Orchid flowering in our meadow, on a walk about today I found our Pyramidal orchids just beginning to show a slightly pink tip of the flower spike. Last year we had hundreds on display.The single Green Winged orchid is now on its last flower and hopefully will produce a lot of seeds. It was fortunate that we found it as the grasses and other flowering plants make it difficult to see. I also spotted a lovely pale pink and almost colourless Broomrape plant . Again hard to spot.
