I was not to be disappointed, they were there, and in even better numbers than last year and a little earlier too. I was expecting to see only the spikes or maybe some stems with buds, but not fully formed adult plants.
I want to return on a sunnier day to take some better photos of the group as the imaged you see here are a little dull.
So far, these are the only wild Orchids I have seen in France but I hope to visit a few likely spots this year to fine other species.
