You little beauty!

Walking the dogs this morning I saw this flower, I think this is a Heath Spotted Orchid. Fletcher was so intent on helping with the photography that it was nearly a squished Heath Spotted Orchid!
I don't recall ever seeing a wild, or even mildly irritated, orchid before so I am quite chuffed with myself.

Nothing to do with your mildly irritated orchid (although it does remind me of my usual joke when I have to write stories about people critical after road crashes/gas explosions/etc: "if I'd just been run over/blown up/etc I wouldn't be critical I'd be furious!), but I'm wondering why your sparkly new blog list thinks my last post was eight months ago?

I don't know. I have just deleted you and loaded Debdale again but it still shows 8 mths ago - this needs further investigation. Question is, am I up to the task with my limited blogging skills? I will endeavour to resolve this, promise.

Am lucky enough to have early purple, lesser spotted and bee orchids here!
