Early Purple Orchid

P1050690

This beauty has appeared in the marginals around our pond and I think it’s an Early Purple Orchid. Not being into botany I’ve only had a couple of wild flower books to help with ID on this one, and have yet to trawl the web for firmer visual confirmation.

Yawn…….trawling the web isn’t so attractive when I can just sit outside and look at this welcome newcomer. It’s real, it’s an orchid and it’s in my garden pond.

I’m happy with that!
