Northern Marsh Orchids, of which there are usually three or four in the garden each year, made a first appearance yesterday, the day of the summer solstice. One is partially hidden by a Common Cat’s-ear plant and one is in among the stems of Red Fescue grass on the south-east bank.

I checked where a Southern Marsh Orchid (Dactylorhiza praetermissa) usually grows and it was still there though about three weeks behind in its growth from last year.
