Some Australian Terrestrial Orchids grow in colonies, and this year we are fortunate to have a couple of reasonably good-sized ones.
After photographing the solitary Waxlip Orchid the other day, I thought I would try to find more Waxlip Orchids yesterday, but only found two more. Last year we had so many of these. I never did get around to posting photographs of groups of flowers on the blog last year, so with the theme being colonies, here is a flash-back to last Spring. Much of the back part of our property looked like this in Spring 2013. I’m hoping that the rest of the Waxlips are just slow to emerge this year, and that I can update this post with photos taken in the next few weeks.
