                                       ORCHIDS at Colomba le Roc

The Lot region is known for its biodiversity, so it is not surprising that international botanists and plant enthusiasts gather here to observe the local flora , in particular the many different orchids, of which at least 13 can be found around Colomba le Roc.

As we are still novices in this field we are not 100% sure that we have identified these amazing flowers correctly, so please let us know if some corrections need to be made (info@colomba-le-roc.org) Thank you.
