Bee Orchids

Bloomin' Lovely!

Have you noticed our beautiful Bee Orchids (lovingly  protected by Chris Beales)near the Church entrance?  

Our first Bee Orchid mother-plant, flowering in 2006.

Seven more have come up this year and
four were flowering for the Patronal Festival.
One family in the parish has these wild in their garden, so watch how you mow your lawn! They are also to be found at Howell Hill reserve, which is about six miles away if you fancy a nice country walk.

Pictures by Chris Beales (from some very unusual positions, would love to have seen him lying on the grass getting the right angles)
