Spring in the bush

After having reasonable rain this winter it looks like being a colourful spring in the bush.
We had a lovely display of the Nodding Greenhood during late August and September. Here is a photo of the last patch which is not far from my back door. I can admire them as I hang out the washing 🙂

In the last couple of weeks more orchids have appeared. The Common Bird Orchid is making a show with its open beak-like flowers.

And the first of the dainty Caladenia are appearing. This is the Hooded Caladenia.

Many more buds are appearing. Hopefully we will have some nicer weather soon and I will have more photos to post.
