Spring is fast approaching, bringing with it an abundance of greenery and blooming flowers. This time of the year is longed for, especially because spring is a balance between the winter and summer months. Spring is one of the best times for walks in the country side!
March to May are the best months to appreciate Malta’s display of wild flowers…ranging from the frequent Cape Sorrell, to the edible Borage, the Greater Snapdragon and the Crown Daisy. Despite these common plants, spring time is the best time of the year to encounter one of the most refined flower species – the orchids.
In the Maltese Islands, more than 30 species of orchids have been recorded. Amongst them is the Yellow Bee Orchid, an indigenous species with a threatened status. The orchid looks like a bee, this attracting male bees who attempt to copulate the flowers. No true copulation takes place, but the male bees end up collecting pollen on their abdomen, transferring pollen from one flower to another.
