The first orchids are starting bloom now in Menorca
Spring is coming and first orchids are shyly beginning to bloom, has we have been able to see in our trips during the last few weeks.
The cold February has caused many plants still remain in lethargy, therefore, just in a few weeks time now, we’ll be witness to the magnificent colour explosion of Menorca’s fields.
Even so, we have already begun to delight us with some of our first orchids, such as the spectacular Giant orchid Himantoglossum robertianum, the beautiful Conical orchid Neotinea conica and the amazing flowers of Yellow bee-orchid Ophrys lutea and Sawfly orchid Ophrys tenthredinifera, both commonly known in the island as “flies”.
Over the coming months we will be able to continue enjoying all their splendor, as well as their flowers complexity. A delight for orchid enthusiasts and nature lovers that Menorca Walking Birds makes available to visitors and residents. Discover with us Menorca’s orchids.
