Wednesday 7th September 2016

SHE SAID:

An early start was required today so that we could get ourselves to Steiglitz by 8.45am to meet Chris for an orchid wander. It was about an hours drive from Ballarat, & Geoff kindly came along for the day.

It was a good but busy day looking around; 13 types of orchids found, 8 flowering types, 3 types in bud & a couple seeding. I was very happy; Geoff found me several Spider Orchids & Waxlips in flower!

We joined Erica & the kids for dinner at her place. Maddie has a couple of friends from Rockhampton down for her party on Saturday. We all had a fun evening, which ended up with us all playing the card game “Cards Against Humanity”....what a cack!

More Blue Caladenias...I LOVE them!


The smaller & more dainty Dusky Fingers


FINALLY.... a Waxlip in flower.
There are SO many flowers coming but all buds 

This will turn into a very pretty Red Beak orchid..
I was really hoping that in the last 5 weeks it would be flowering....

When we left the Brisbane Ranges National Park
on the 8th July there were a few of these Small
Gnat Orchids in flower; now there are 100's

It was a long day of orchidising. Luckily I managed to spot some.
