As Barbra Streisand would say..."Hello GORGEOUS!"

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this photo needs no description...just plain GORGEOUS, hello Dactylorhiza fuchsii aka Spotted Orchid!  This plant is widely variable in colour and height, ranging from 15 to 60 cm in height. The dense and rich-flowered inflorescence (flower spike), produced in June–August, is at first conical then cylindrical. The flower colour can vary from white to pale purple with purple spots, a symmetrical pattern of dark purple loops or dots and dashes.
