Help Identify Please - UPDATED PICTURES

Hi all.........

I new here and want to jump right in and ask you what this plant is. It has been coming up for the past few years but generally it has been cut off during grass cutting time. This year were keeping it and wondering what it is.

Can anyone help out?? A friend has said that it might be some sort of a wild Orchid but were not sure.

Thanks for the help and hope that everyone is having a safe summer.

Nick

Re: hi there

Nope ... nothing other than those little spikes coming out of the top. It seems to be growing up but thats it. As soon as it gets anything in the way of a bloom I'll post up a picture.

Thanks for the help!!

Are you sure those aren't buds?

The foliage and spiky "buds" look like my double pink cone flower foliage. The buds come in looking just like that. Is it possible that your buds haven't opened yet and the exciting part is yet to come? :?
Namaste, Laura

Here are a few updated pictures I took last night of our mystery plant.
Hope this helps to find out what this is.

Have a look at Epipactis helleborine:

Age is a biological fact.
Old is a state of mind.
I will age, but I refuse to get old.
