the double cuckoo flower itself



the boss was very pleased to find this, it took him ages to identify it but eventually it turned up in one of his favourite books, Flora Britannica, by Richard Mabey. Poor Mr Mabey got depressed after writing his book. The boss says it's not that surprising because anyone who loves the wild should be feeling down about it just now. I think there are too many of them for the good of the planet. Mind you there are quite a lot of us.

What a wonderful find- is it quite small and located in grassy areas? I think I came across the same a couple of months ago. really nice little thing!
