Hyacinth Orchids on Three Orchid Day : My Actifit Report Card: November 19 2021
Wake to a grey day. It has been raining. Forecast to be more rain later. That got me moving on the bike a little earlier than normal. Get out and ride with a view to finding orchid a day fast in case the rain comes
Large tongue orchid is now flowering on the way up the hill from the water

A few more plants down the slope - 8 in all

Rode a bit further up to see if horned orchids are showing. Walked a bit to their site. They are not but there were new large tongue orchids showing
Stayed dry and got the ride and orchid a day in
Dithered the afternoon away on a few projects too many. This is what happens when results are mediocre - focus falls away.
My wife went out for dinner. I did home alone bbq and watched a live stream music show from Anna Weatherup. We saw her a few months back before lockdown.
