I have my first garden and am loving it. growing my own veg, herbs and flowers. I have a deep seated love of rose's, orchids and succulents.

Just starting to come up and hard to see. I'm absurdly pleased. I'm having a sort out in the garden as I cant do anywhere as I need to social isolate as much as possible. I'm glad I can still go to work as I can isolate there having the studio to my sell. If I couldn't I wouldn't see any one which I'm not sure could cope with for 12 weeks.

So it's not growing wild as I brought it from laneside nursery at Malvern orchid show. But it is a native one that will hopefully do well in my garden #nativeorchid #orchid . @jlsardina @Christos
