The first British Orchids of 2017 flowering in April

April marks the start of Orchid Safari time in Britain with the flowering of our early species such as the Early Purple (Orchis mascula) I found my first one of the year in Cornwall this week (actually Annie spotted it on the side of the main road on the Lizard as we drove past)

Fist flowers opening on April 10th – has anyone seen flowers earlier?
