Plants in a woodland setting in Sussex are also beginning to flower.
Common...and spotted, they may be.... but they are surely beautiful.
*Footnote added 2nd June. No need to leave Haywards Heath town centre to see Common-spotted orchids. From South Road enter St Wilfred's church graveyard and there are some fine specimens in the "wild meadow" 10m. or so from the gate on your left. The path is wheelchair accessible.
