More Bee Orchids

On the lawns outside Dover Council Offices at Whitfield a number of areas have been marked off as not to be mowed. These areas are where Bee Orchids are growing. This pink sepalled plant was one of them.

Lizard Orchids

.... and if you are down in Kent to catch a ferry in June schedule some time to visit Sandwich Bay for the magnificent display of Lizard Orchids that grow on the golf course, alongside the road and even popping up in front lawns. Not to be missed!

I'm going to Norfolk this week end as well and any info on creeping lady's tresses and LBO would very handy . I am waiting for another hip replacement and aimlessly wandering round Holkam Woods doesn't sound fun.

Thanks for the help regarding where to see some orchids in Norfolk Peter. That PDF is very useful. Buxton Heath isn't far from me, I will have to make a trip there (my only previous visit was for Nightjars).
