A real bobby-dazzler. I never would have thought that was an orchid! So pretty! Came across one in a wooded area about 3 weeks ago.Took me by surprise as I have never seen any wild orchids that close to my home before.Heard story’s of them growing not too far away from the park years ago but until recently never actually seen one in flower locally.Even the leaves are wonderfully spotted.With luck you may even get the early purple orchid returning to the area. Let’s hope so Anthony; another species of orchid would be wonderful. Comments are closed.
