Many thanks to Mary McLauchlan who has sent me this picture of an orchid photographed last week during what she describes as, "a brilliant week's holiday based in Kilchoan."
She asks what type of orchid it is. I am no expert, but would suggest that it's a common spotted - though their name does no justice to their beauty. The common spotted have had a good year. There have been many more of them, they've grown much taller than in previous years, and have continued their flowering later than usual.
