Go wild about flow­ers at talk

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Perthshire res­i­dent and orchid afi­cionado Mar­tin Robin­son is to give a talk at Kirk­michael Ses­sion House on the wild or­chids of Scot­land later this month.

Or­chids are more nu­mer­ous and di­verse in the lo­cal coun­try­side than many peo­ple re­alise and al­ways ex­ude a cer­tain charisma and mys­tique, cre­ated by their beauty and fas­ci­nat­ing pol­li­na­tion mech­a­nisms.

Mar­tin, who lives at Enochdhu, has stud­ied them for many years, mostly in the UK but also in Eu­rope – es­pe­cially France. He will ex­plain what he feels is so spe­cial about them and il­lus­trate which ones can be found in this area and in Scot­land gen­er­ally.

Mar­tin is the botan­i­cal recorder for east Perthshire and runs botan­i­cal cour­ses at Kin­dro­gan Field Cen­tre, lo­cated near to where he lives.

This lat­est talk is on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 22 at 7.30pm.En­try is a £2 do­na­tion at the door in aid of Ses­sion House funds. Teas, cof­fees and bis­cuits will be pro­vided.
