Angelic find


Enjoy this poetic description of twayblade orchid in the Chilterns, courtesy of the Guardian's Country diary.



‘Each floret in the shape of a cherubic angel raising its tiny wings to heaven.’



Meanwhile, in KeltneyburnMeadow, volunteers counted individual flower-heads of some of the wildflowers, such as the Twayblade Orchid (Neottia ovata) and Bird’s-nest Orchid (Neottia nidus-avis).
