With it less than a week away from Christmas, and a bit more than a week before a new year, I find myself unable to decide what to write for today’s post. This year as been a reasonable year for orchids, though unfortunately, I have been unable to see them as often as I would have liked to.
At present there are not many orchids in flower. The hyacinths orchid and a few swamp species are flowering now. The common hyacinth orchid, Dipodium roseum, incidently is one of the most photographed orchids in the Adelaide Hills, and is often found along road sides. It is easily spotted due to its pink flowers and standing a couple of feet high.
Have a blessed Christmas!
