Prudent tradesman, he knows where to find his customers.

I think there are now over 220 'species'of ophrys in Greece. Soon be as many dactylorhiza species as every mountain now has its own.

I am off to Spili in April I hope whoever has divided them up has left some labels stuck beside them as otherwise it will be impossible to identify all the new ones from the old ones.

Unfortunately we have never found these labels and are still waiting for a measuring instrument that tells us the names.

I visited Crete last year but we were almost too late, due to warm and dry early spring. I hope in Gargano it will not be cold for too long, we are going mid april.

I think south europe will have a late spring blossom.
A friend travelled to Akamas peninsula (Cyprus) last week, he said orchids vegetation are at least 3 weeks late  than 2016.
Crete has heavy snow. However more water means better blooming.

We went to the Gargano first week in April and it was very good. If it is a late spring your timing should be perfect.

This year it is Crete same time as Yann and so we shall both be pleased or disappointed at the same time!
