Spiranthes blooming...it's getting close to fall!
Went out last evening to check on the bog (as I always do) and found that the Spiranthes cernua had opened up almost over night. I got my camera and took some pictures to share with fellow bog orchid growers. this is a great plant, it seeds itself all over the garden which is really rare for an orchid. On top of that it has a wonderful fragrance something like baby powder I think. The lavender buds in the background are one of the heaths I planted when I first put in the bog (and kind of wish I hadn't...they reseed way to easily!)
