The forecast for Thursday is uncertain but not too good. Meteo France thinks there will be thunderstorms, but the BBC thinks they will hold off until the evening. So we will go ahead with the planned wander around the orchid area on the Guilhaumard Plateau, expecting to be rained on a bit!
The early orchids have largely finished, but there are lots of later ones coming through. We will wander around the area (near La Pezade), covering 2 to 3 km. There seems quite a high chance that we will be rained on at some point, so come prepared, though we will always be less than 1 km from the cars if there is a real storm.
As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, for departure at 10:00. We should be back in Lodeve by 13:00.
Distance: 2-3 km.
Bring: Flower books, magnifying glass, raincoat.
