2017 UK orchids

No-one has started this thread yet so I will kick it off with my cultivated Early Spider Orchid which has just come into bloom. Don't rush off to the wild sites yet though; it has spent the winter sheltered and protected.

Nice one Steve!

I was photographing early spiders at Dancing Ledge on March 1st last year so they should be up now...

Very envious of your Spider orchid Steve. I have Common Spotted and a Fragrant, rosettes now appearing.

Good to see this thread awake!

I spent a wet winter afternoon trying to sort out 'marsh orchid' nomenclature across some of the books on the shelf, and have summarized the results in a web page. Be glad of corrections if anyone has the time and interest to look at it:

Speaking of books, I trust everyone's seen Mike's very handy vegetative guide (congrats to him on this, and on winning the HOS photography prize).

And this forthcoming publication looks interesting...i'm a fan of Bo Mossberg's illustrations.
