Bee Orchid Day

Posted on

Our first Bee Orchid flower opened today

When the snow had melted in late January I counted 37 small rosettes in the front lawn. I marked each of them with a small green cane. This year only two of the plants have gone on to flower. The first flower opened today, so today is Bee Orchid Day.

There are a lot of orchids flowering on the grass verges near where I live, but I have always thought Bee Orchids, with their exotic flower spike, are special.

This plant was on the grass verge near our local IKEA store
