My resident orchid hunter wanted to show me the donkey orchids at Shenton Bushland this weekend. They were fabulous. Heaps of donkey and cowslip orchids which are always so lovely to find. Then at the Save the Children booksale we heard the Pink Fairy orchids were out at Bold Park.
We found them and some spectacular spider orchids – at least three varieties and donkeys and cowslips.
If you go, head up to Banksia walk via Possum walk. There are heaps just at the corner of Thornbill and Banksia.
The orchids are in more abundance at Shenton but spiders are special.
