Two years ago, two pyramidal orchids popped up in the meadow which takes over my front lawn every summer. Last year, there was no sign of them.
This year they are back, and I did not notice their growing. I had given up hope of seeing them again as the usually large numbers of ox-eye daisies that usually dominate the meadow had not turned up either, except as a trickle. I put it down to the weather in March / April / May (rather than to climate change).
So, something of an equilibrium is restored in my head at least. All cannot be so bad if it's a two orchid summer, and there's the bonus that I can gaze on them without spending a drop of carbon.
