Locally common in Kent, the Lady Orchid (Orchis purpurea) can be found in quite dense woodland extending out into clearings. It can grow some two feet in height and the flower head may have up to 50 flowers.
The 'hood' varies from almost black to dark red and the lip is predominantly white, flushed with pink, with a profusion of red/purple spots. It has the fanciful appearance of a lady dressed in a divided skirt.

Thank you all so much for your generous support of my last upload, with special thanks to Pete for the HC and to Jeanie for the GEA - all really appreciated Smile
