Here are a few photographs of Green Winged Orchids (Anacamptis morio) growing in our garden in Worcestershire. There have been at least 70 spikes this year.

Anacamptis morio is very variable, this one with paler falls. The green striping is more visible on the paler forms. Sometimes a pink or white spike appears amongst the others.

A particularly dark form.

Super images Colin and Giles ... very envious of those wonderful orchids, Colin.

On the Warwickshire Hills

Can't even start to compete with Colin's fabulous orchids, but here are a few plants that have done especially well in the garden this year, despite being covered in a foot of snow for two weeks in February. This plant of Paeonia cambesedessii has flowered for the first time this year from seed.

Trillium albidum, these seem to have been in flower for weeks and still look good.
