Early Purple Orchid day 2012

A full eight days later than last year, but five days earlier than the year before, we've spotted our first Early Purple Orchids outside the veggie patch and polytunnel. Which means eyes will be peeled for Burnt Orchids later in the week.

Like mushrooms, they must have been waiting for the rain and are unfurling as I type. Blooming marvellous(ly).
