Orchids in the Strangest Places

Broad leaved Helleborine, Belfast
City Flora
Another Orchid has been added to the list with the addition of the Broad leaved Helleborine. Surprisingly though it was close to Belfast City centre, in flowerbed in the car park of a business park just off the Ormeau Road.

Several plants were present but only one was in flower or not badly damaged.

Given the light and location I did not get the highest quality images but they will do until I get shots of better examples in more natural surroundings!

Meantime the Laughing Gull is still present in Ballycastle is evening.
