Orchid Special

If ever there was a day for an Orchid Special its today. Wind and rain in abundance so don't go outside and feast your eyes on these lovelys.

We start with a big rarey! The Small White Orchid which is only known from a couple of NI localities. Many thanks to Geoff for this photo and the one below. Check Geoffs photos at

Here is another rarity this time courtesy of Tristan Reid. Its the Kurdish Hellaborine and it would cause a stir if found here. This one was in Turkey!

The rest are a mixture of Marsh and Spotted Orchids all taken in the North or Ireland the past week or so.
