Spectacular spring this year

It has been a unusual spring both in terms of the abundance of wildflowers and the number of people out there walking and enjoying the bush.

Greenhoods have been particularly impressive. This was one of many patches in the bush to the east of Dingo Park Road.

Special finds due to their comparative rarity in our region have been the Slaty Helmet Orchid Corybas incurvus and Rosy Baeckea Euryomyrtus ramosissima.
