Wild Orchids

Just look at this stunning orchid growing wild in my garden.  It is so vibrant!  Isn’t nature wonderful?

    • I do live in the campo (countryside), so I guess that helps. Starting around this time of year there are many beautiful wildflowers around. It’s quite a display!

  1. It is beautiful! Do you know its name? How big is each flower? Here in Canada, we have wild stream orchid, Epipactis helleborine (Broad-leaved Helleborine) almost everywhere–very winter hardy you can imagine! But the flower is pretty small, about 1cm diameter without fragrance.

    • I’m afraid I don’t know the name, but I will try to find out – surely someone locally should know.

      Each stem stands about ten inches tall with with about a three inch band of flowers at the top.a

      Thanks for your visit and for taking the trouble to leave a comment – much appreciated.

  2. Wild flowers that pop up in the garden are a blessing, but one so vibrant as that must be a source of great attention. It must be happy, to have flowered – I wonder whether it’ll clump and require you to make a whole new garden bed around it?

    • I’ll certainly keep my eye on it and let you know!

      We get lots of wild flowers springing up anytime soon – many people think they are weeds, but I think they are gorgeous!

  3. What luck! This is absolutely gorgeous, Marianne, and the color spectacular. God bless the insect, bird, animal, or wind gust that dropped the spore in your yard that grew to produce this beauty. 🙂

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
