The beautiful Bee-Orchids are back in the grass around by the cutting bed.
In 2018 there was just 1 and this year there are 5.
I've photographed them before, but find them just as special every year.
The aren't so many Pyramidal Orchids on the meadow this year, perhaps it was too dry and hot earlier.
How did I forget to give a mention to the Summer Solstice on Saturday - it was a proper summer day here and still good daylight after 10pm but then on Sunday I woke to a gloomy morning, rain and strong winds and it didn't feel much like summer at all, everyone who had outdoor plans for Father's Day must have been disappointed.
