More strange Bee Orchid nonsense! 26 June 2019

At the risk of boring anyone not into orchids!

A very strange Bee Orchid variant was found by a friend near the hospital in Norwich today so I popped along to take a look. This is what greeted me - neither fulvofuscus or bicolor but somewhere in between. It could even prove to be an atrofuscus but the jury is out. As a footnote, later in the day 4 more similar plants were discovered about half a mile away. What on earth is going on is anybody's guess!

A veritable forest of Hoary Mullion was nearby and the belgarum Bee Orchid is now looking a little faded but with one new flower emerging at the top.

Strange times indeed.
