Each year when I worked in Cross Hands Ind Est I complained about Bee Orchids being mown. Thanks to Hilary at and Isabel at Carms CC they have flowered and set seed this year. Big thumbs up for this verge management

Dorset heath (Erica ciliaris), which grows in Cornwall and some other sites as well as Dorset, has much bigger flowers than our other heathers. Last new addition to the Pictorial Guide for a little while.
