|Pink Fingers - Pterostylis carnea on Farrer Ridge|
|Swan Orchid (Hymenochilus cycnocechilus)|
I had not been up on Farrer Ridge since I was a kid. In fact I didn't even know that it was called Farrer Ridge then. It just used to be "the bush behind so-and-so's house".
Julie was very helpful, and friendly. I am sure that Varena got a lot of valuable orchid info during the afternoon. But a memorable snippet Julie mentioned was that a truck hit her house just before it was finished being built. I looked it up online and found an article from 1971, and there is even a grainy photo. She has an unusual claim to fame.
