During the past year, our colony of Greenhood Orchids has expanded: we now have about ninety plants. They clearly like their sheltered home on the lee side of the Boatshed.
Greenhood Ground Orchids are endemic to Fleurieu Peninsula – but I doubt that they occur naturally so close to the ocean. Our Boatshed colony is probably unique, and much cherished.
From time to time the little orchids show their heads above the parapet….just as I do with my Boatshed commentaries. In that sense, I see them as kindred spirits…..
