Violet Helleborines in the rain, 30 July 2018

A quick pop down into Suffolk for my (nearly) annual visit to the Violet Helleborines that grow in a couple of woods there. It's fairly safe to say the weather has broken because I got bloody soaked trying to photograph them with many mozzies also after my blood!
The numbers were rather disappointing compared to previous years, I found just 8 plants which varied from completely gone over and going to seed to other plants where there are still loads of flower buds still to open.

These represent my 37th orchid species of 2018
