Drive By Orchids

On Sunday morning whilst Bun and I were driving to the 'undisclosed site,' we passed a lane just on the northern outskirts of the local patch where he recalled seeing orchids growing in profusion, several years ago though, I think he said. Anyway on the way back from a quick visit to Honiton today, I was passing said lane and couldn't help driving down it for a little look-see. I'm pleased to say he was right; both sides of the lane were adorned with scores of Common Spotted Orchids. They were mostly only just beginning to come into flower so in a few weeks should look even better than they do now.

Both sides of the road looked like this.

Just stop the car, wind down the window,
and enjoy views like this. Easy! :-)
