I was out on a drive and spotted at the roadside what I thought to be man Orchid.  I remembered on the return trip to stop and look and discovered with sadness that I had spotted a White Mignonette flower.  I looked up and across the road, and unbelievably I saw several Man Orchids!!!  Make of it what you will, but I had the tingles for the rest of that day!  Some of the orchids were green, but a few were this beautiful crimson fringed variety (below), with a gorgeous backdrop of dark conider in semi shade..
