orchids in the bush nearby

A quick blog hello to Leah and Julian, who have a cottage near Dunach not too far from us. Thanks a lot for getting in touch.

They recently went bushwalking near the giant Quartz Reef which is very close by our place. Here's an a photo of a greenhood orchid that they found near it - apparently there are about 60 other types of orchid that grow round there too.

We've not managed to visit in wildflower season yet, but I've heard it's meant to be beautiful and this photo from Julian is proof. Can't wait to see it for myself. :-)
