Todd, interesting project.
Not wishing to be a spoilsport, and I'm not suggesting for one minute you intend to, but please don't pick those Lady Orchids. They are very rare in the wild around the U.K.

Cheers.
Ron

I'm surprised...I thought orchids grew in tropical climates.

Cheers,

More than fifty species grow wild in the UK. Good sign of healthy grassland. I’ve taken to photographing them if I see them while walking...mostly so I can work out what type they are

Nice one Todd. Obviously in very safe hands. They are the most beautiful of plants.

Onwards and upwards with the build.....:thumb2:
