Moments to treasure
Thanks Greg. It was growing at the edge of a path at a nearby wildlife reserve.
Do you know its botanical name?
Hi. I don’t for certain but I think it is the Early Purple Orchid (Orchis mascula). http://www.theecologist.org/green_green_living/gardening/1302564/the_spotters_guide_to_spring_wild_flowers.html
Thank you! It is pretty!
I love to look at orchids, but I don’t think I’ve seen such a purple one before. Usually I see the yellow, white, or pink variety.
Isn’t that strange as I don’t think I have seen a yellow wild orchid.
