#30DaysWild – Day 8 – I found a Bee Orchid!

I found a flowering Bee Orchid in my local patch! I am thrilled! I have only ever seen them in photos so I’m over the moon to find one. Isn’t it a stunning flower!

Now I’ve home, I’ve pulled open May’s BBC Wildlife magazine to read the article on Orchids. I will enjoy finding out more about these beautiful plants.

  1. I’ve not seen one, but how beautiful are they 🙂

    We have hundreds of these around our local industrial estate. My partner has given the council maps of their locations and every year we put up signs to remind the grass cutting team where they are. They now leave these areas including two fairly big areas of grass until the bee orchids have finished flowering. Even a neighbour has started putting our signs up! 🙂
