Re: Orchids at Ynyslas

That was my reaction at Ynyslas, Bee orchids? Sand dunes? However then put it down to the ignorance of a learner. Obviously they are happy on other than limestone.

Orchids at Ynyslas

Had a 4 day break at Borth last week. The orchids on the dunes at Ynyslas were looking great. Pictured here Early Marsh Orchid, Pyramidal Orchid and Bee Orchid – but here were others and lots more flower species as well.
