Landcare members wander amongst the flowers
This weekend, about ten of us walked around Karen and Tony’s covenanted property to see what is in bloom, say hello to the wallaby and generally enjoy being in nature.
Among the flowers we discovered was a plain sun orchid. Cathy’s sharp eyes spotted this tiny blue flower. We didn’t think it was plain at all!
Rabbit-ears are also flowering. This lovely sun orchid has distinctive brown ears on the central column and is thought to be mimicking flowers of Hibbertia species.
This delicate Tall bluebell (Wahlenburgia stricta) was found growing amongst the shrubbery.
And underfoot we found flannel cudweed which is a woolly prostrate member of the Asteracea family.
Sunny spring weather, great company, lots to see, explore and learn about — followed by a shared picnic lunch. What more could you ask?
