There are several dozen plants on the hillside behind their house.
Our friends Rosemary and Jean Michel have a lovely little colony of Early Purple Orchids (Fr. Orchis mâle) in their garden in Blois. They have at least three other species in the garden, but the Early Purps are the first to flower. These were photographed twelve months ago, but these pretty orchids are out in flower again at their place now.
You can see the spotted leaves that are diagnostic for this species
(although not all of the plants in a colony will show spots).
