Too late for orchids

We got home too late for the terrestrial orchids - the hot weather had burnt them off. However,we do have lots of other granite country wildflowers at the moment - many are very small and need tracking down!! This is a bigger one - about 3/4 in long and a beautiful colour.
I really like your depth of field...almost looks like ICM in the background.

How lovely to be able to grow orchids. Can't do that here except in a heated greenhouse.

@granagringa Hi Madeline - it's always nice to chat to you - but don't worry if you are busy - having a lot to do seems to be such a good way to keep an interest in life!! Will look forward to talking to you when we can overlap. Cheers for now - and thanks for your comment on the flower.

@nobled Hi Dorothy - thanks for your comment. It's quite surprising how many purple and mauve flowers there are up here. They look lovely with the wattle. Cheers Rob Z

@casablanca Hi Casablanca - our little terrestrial orchids only appear and flower for a few weeks in spring each year - for the rest of the year they are bulbs under the ground. I'm afraid I can't take much credit for them. :) Thanks for your interest.

@woofandweft1 @bintal Thanks Deborah and Sylvia - these are a lovely pale purple - and we seem to have a lot of others which are also purple and mauve. Thanks for your interest.

@taffy Thanks Taffy - the wavy edge to the petal is quite characteristic of this one. Makes it so fragile looking. Thanks for your interest. Cheers
