Random thoughts from an amateur Aussie naturalist.
Monday, 26 September 2011
I went out to the Brisbane Ranges to look for orchids but, although there were lots of other plants flowering (see a selection below), I found very few orchids. I don't know whether I was too early, too late, looking in the wrong spots or the orchids just aren't prolific this year. I'll have to talk to have a chat to some of the 'friends' to find out - their wildflower show is on 9 October. The only ones I could find were Nodding Greenhoods, Pink Fingers, Wax-lip Orchids and a small patch of Rabbit-ears Thelymitraantennifera.
