Orchids in Spring

Yellow Orchid Ophrys lutea
May and June are the best months for Orchids in Southern France. Despite the cold weather at the moment, Mostyn and I saw several species yesterday while out walking near Villespassans. Yellow Orchids were common along one of the tracks and we also saw Early Purple Orchid, Early Spider Orchid, Lady Orchid, Pyramidal Orchid and Narrow-leaved Helleborine.
