A selection from the palette

Here is a sample of what’s on offer in the Muckleford bush at the moment, all taken in the area to the west of Mia Mia Track on the 28th September. Late September rain has arrived just in time – the next fortnight should have the things looking terrific again.

  1. I’d be betting on Hooded Caladenia Caladenia cucullata. (that is if the Viridans plant database has got it right)

    Our bush looks beautiful Geoff. Can’t wait to have a walk when we get home from Italy.

    My guess would be a Musky Caladenia (Caladenia gracilis) as I find they usually have just a blush of colour on the tip of the labellum while Hooded Caladenia (Caladenia cucullata) have a definite dark purple tip.
