Early Purps

Roadside nature Reserves are such important little havens. Someone ought to produce a book on them … now there’s a thought.

Last week I went back to my old stomping grounds to see the regular Early Purple Orchids flowering along the country lanes. I didn’t quite get the spike count to a full ton … but 91 isn’t bad. Such a beautiful orchid holding so many promises of spring.

Bursting

Early Purple Orchids were getting ready to burst the other week. They weren’t quite in their prime … yet. Although by now they will be. These beautiful flowers are fore bringers of all our Orchids.

Early Purples

Some corking Early Purple Orchids this year. These spikes were sitting proud of the grass on the roadside in North Norfolk. Such a lovely orchid that doesn’t seem to mind the late frosts.

Not so Early

Thanks to a friend Tony, I managed to photograph some lovely Early Purple Orchids on the roadside locally the other week. These thick stemmed spikes have managed to survive the re-surfacing of the lane and passing traffic to give a glorious display.
