Wild Flowers

Following on from our last post theme of bees we have below a picture of our Bee orchids that are out in flower.These curious flowers appear to have a female bee resting on them,however the purpose of this charade is to attract a real bee which will then bring pollination for the plant.

The plants can be quite fickle, so you may have many growing in one year then hardly any showing another year.They are always a treat to see.
