So.... a few pics from the few hours of sunshine stolen from the working week......
Lesser butterfly orchid found in a cute little nook near the beautifully-named Lynsore Bottom. We have some nice bottoms in Kent: Pratts Bottom, Otty Bottom and my favourite - Pett Bottom.
This road name is well-known to Kent naturalists, by the wood renowned for its fly orchids.
Common spotted orchids have suddenly sprung up but bee orchids are still awaited.... will this be one......... or will it be another late spider orchid like this....?
Butterflies are scarce at the moment, with the first meadow browns emerging, and a few common blues.
If the rain’s got to fall let it fall on Wednesday, Tuesday, Monday,
Any day but Sunday
Sunday’s the day when it’s got to be fine, ‘Cause that’s when I’m looking for plants.
If the rain’s got to fall, let it fall on Piltdown, Queensdown,
Any place but Kingsdown,
