how about a Dog's Tooth violet'?
Erythronium dens-canis, member of the lily family.
the leaves look orchid like which fooled me, but the flowers not at all, a beauty ihave never seen it yet, but app it grows in the southern pyrenees.
been on your rambles again.....?

Thanks Resi - I'll check that out. This was from the walk I last blogged about - no rambling since - too wet!
