Lathyrus Odoratus

Frog Orchid

I've spent a couple of years half-heartedly looking for Frog Orchid but this year I decided to be more systematic. I tried all the known locations without success until today when I went to the last site on my list. A two hour walk to get to the site, an hour searching for the orchids and a two hour walk back.  But it was worth it - four tiny (flower spike is only 3-4 cm) green plants hidden in a sea of grasses and other green plants - a real botanical Where's Wally.
