Bee Orchids are back … and much more!

I went for a walk around Great Wilbraham and out to Little WIlbraham and was pleased with the number of wild flowers that I was able to photograph without leaving the footpath.

My first aim was to see if the Bee Orchids between Great and Little W were in evidence and I was pleased to find that they are just coming into flower.  There were some lovely dog roses flowering in the hedgerows as well as poppies, brambles, clover and many species which I can't identify

I just hope that the Roads Department manage to resist chopping down the orchids this year - last year when every stem had four or five flowers on, they came through with a mechanical strimmer.
