Sunday 19th February 2017


I had my final bush walk in the ACT today. Tony suggested there might be things out at Booroomba Rocks. He was right.
Apart from the multitudes of people dressed in their very bright figure-hugging “active wear” off climbing the rock, there were several orchids around. I found a new to me one, the Autumn Magenta Orchid, plus a Summer Greenhood & a Rosy Hyacinth Orchid.

The rest of the places I went looking I was unsuccessful; & there were plenty drongos haring around dirt roads. Note to self: don't go out at the weekends, it's way too crowded!

This little orchid is the Eriochilus magenteus -
The Autumn Magenta Orchid

Size against my thumb

Diplodium decurvum - Summer Greenhood

Still flowering Dipodium roseum - Rosy Hyacinth Orchid
These start flowering in December

The track I walked along


I did the usual transport for Mum, then we had the Canberra girls over to Farrer. It was our final catch up before our departure northwards.
