Wild Orchids in the Homelands garden!

Thanks to a visiting friend, we were alerted to the presence of wild orchids in our wild flower meadow. Thank you Simon!
It took some time to identify them - we now think we have got it right, and they are 'Common Spotted Orchids'.
Wild orchids are a very good 'indicator species' - my son Richard will write a little more about what that means  soon.
Hereby some pictures, taken on Monday the 28th. June 2010.
