Early Purple Orchid - Orchis mascula

I went for a quick walk round the back of the hill earlier and ended up in the woods to the east of where i live, where the Early Purple orchid is just about finishing it's display for this year.

They are a beautiful flower and quite common in these woods, although it was only a few years ago they really came back with a vengeance and each year sees them spread just that little bit further through the woods, these combined with the Bluebells give a great floral display each year and one that I'm glad to say only gets better and better as each year passes.
