Settlers Common, Brookton, BeverleyAugust 30 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C
Today is the restart of our wildflower trip after a refreshing shower and sleep at home in our own bed. We sat off to Settlers Common in Armadale, to see especially, a hybrid orchid of a Cowslips and a Pink Fairy cross. Settlers common had lots of Donkey, Cowslips, Snail orchid but Ruby spotted the 1 and only hybrid.
We then went to Brookton to nine acre rock which was suppose to be popular picnic spot for lunch. Nothing to write home about.
We then went to Beverley, and at Brooking Street reserve, the orchid display was mind-blowing. There were all the usual suspects and more. There was a Fringed Mantis, and a Greenhood orchid that I have never seen before.
The highlight of our trip was when we came across a long neck turtle crossing the road on route to Greenhills. We have never seen this creature before and were super excited to see one.Read more
