Sunday 10th July 2016


I thought it was going to be wet all day for our final day here in Chiltern. But the forecast seems to have changed. Afternoon showers are predicted!

I was keen to finish yesterday's drive, & we headed off in the National Park again. We spotted heaps of fungi of varying shapes & colours. Not so much on the orchid front though. We found lots of basal leaves without buds or flowers, but there was one more Greenhood for me to get down into the dirt, & photograph though.
There is a possibility we may return in about 5 weeks on our travels back to Canberra, now I know there are a lot of orchids coming on in the area!

Geoff got to enjoy the AFL on TV, as the predicted rain arrived around 2pm.

Colourful Fungi everywhere


Varena's enthusiasm for photographing orchids had her in a shallow hole on her knees, hunched over in the mud, trying to get a good shot of an orchid I found. I must have racked up a heap of brownie points for the find, but lost most of them due to the difficult location! Surely that was not MY fault?
