Frog Orchids



This evening, Jenny & I travelled to the other side of Bungay in search of the Wink's Meadow Suffolk Wildlife trust reserve. walking along a tarmac track, the area must have been a former airfield, ahead of us a Hare sped away. Winks Meadow is a wildflower meadow where several rare Frog Orchid plants can be seen at this time of the year. I located 4 small frog Orchid plants which had just finished flowering and around 40 Pyramidial Orchid plants which were also just past their best. Why they were named Frog Orchids is anybody's guess, apart from double lobed lip of the flower being green in colour resembling the coloration of a Frog!
