Winter flowers on Texel island

This video is about orchids, flowering on Texel island in the Netherlands in June. However, there are also some flowers there in colder months.

Translated from Ecomare museum on Texel:

Flowery Christmas at Texel – 28-12-15

It’s warm for the time of year and also on Texel effects on nature show. Particularly in the case of plants that can be seen clearly. In recent days, the Forestry Commission has counted the flowering plants in the Dunes of Texel National Park. In total 32 flowering species were found. The flowers were mainly seen in sheltered places like along the Redshank Brook in the forest and the green footpath behind the Geul nature reserve.

Some flowering species’ old plants were flowering again: ragwort, common sowthistle and prickly sow-thistle (Sonchus asper), Japanese rose and blackberries.
