The first day of Summer but it still feels like Winter

I went for a brisk walk today, hoping to see some early-season tachinid flies, but the chilly wind seemed to keep all insects down. The views were lovely though and the very first Hairy Violets were poking through. I also took a few photos of the orchids to show how late a season it is going to be – they are still very small and I would expect them to flower no earlier than mid May.

If you fancy a little game I have uploaded a photo of a patch of ground – just find as many orchids as you can … the next photo will show you the ‘answers’ 😉
