Donkey Orchids on a less visited road : My Actifit Report Card: October 23 2021


Slow start after a late night writing and markets stuff. My wife was heading out early to visit her brother for his 45th birthday. Gave me the space to go for a bend the legs ride. Chose to ride east to an area I have not been able to visit since lockdown began. I had a plan - that got changed with police action on the road I wanted to go down.

Good thing I know the roads. That had me riding up a hill I normally ride down. A few teardrop flowers a little past the first promise of orchids flowers

Two cryptostylis subulata buds - not seen these before as I am normally whizzing down the hill at 60 km/h - this us why I like out and walk track work. That way I do not miss things

Late openers for the boronia

Rode down to Akuna Bay and turned around to come back up hoping to find donkey orchids

Nice chat with another Great Cycle Challenge rider down here - Clive had just crossed 400 kms for his challenge. He lives a few houses down the road and was exercising his freedom

Spied some orchids budding between the crash barriers and the road - rose hyacinth orchid on the way close to the bottom of the hill

Close up

Found the donkey orchids higher up than previous years. This is the one I saw first - laid the bike down and there were two more

Golden donkey orchid

Twins - diuris aurea

Bearded orchid on the way up the hill - looks like calochilus campestris - copper bearded orchid. Strange to see the lower flower not seeded while the ones above have

The ride turned out a little longer than plan on account of the police cars. All good as it did get me a new orchid site. The quiet parts of the ride were great. Did cop a really clowe encounter with a car coming into roundabout with me in the circle st 35 km/h. Prick!!!!

Did manage to top 100 kms over two days - for Kids Cancer

Did a little garden work patching up gaps in the front lawn. This is a losing game as it is the turning circle to get the cars up the driveway forwards. Wheel spins kill the grass.

Dinner: Homemade pizza on gluten free bases
