The wildflower patch is starting to look rather nice. I had been getting a bit nervy, partly because this is the first year that I haven’t sown any wildflower seed or planted foxgloves in this patch. However, there appear to be quite a few things there. Plus when I took these photos, I saw a male orange tip.
Although the plant above looks like red helleborine (from the picture in my book), it is described as “rare, protected by law” so it might not be. The book does say that it grows in woods and shady places which sort of covers my wildflower patch so it is possible I suppose.
