Having a bee orchid appear and flower most successfully in my garden is one thing, but to have two is another (see Unknown treasures). There are always surprises in my garden. I find many of them growing in odd places. They’re protected from the birds, the weather and the lawn mower. There is nothing we enjoy more than seeing spring flowers popping up on the lawn. This year the cowslips have spread and one, at the point of seeding, is protected from the lawn mower by three medium sized stones. To my surprise an identical single stem to the bee orchid appeared right next to this cowslip and the flower, when it opened, was that of a pink pyramid orchid. I thought of how we can find ourselves enriched by accepting an attitude or way of doing things imparted to us by someone else. We can gain these by an observation, questioning how to make things better or accepting advice. The advice may be looked for or just offered. Either way the enriching of our life could be there for the blessing and benefit of somebody else. Therefore, once again I am looking after another beautiful, but different, orchid. It is no-one else’s responsibility but mine to preserve it.
