Hyacinth Orchids down Terrey Hills Way : January 30 2023


Forecast was for heaps of rain - more than an inch. Started out cloudy - mood was getting to me. Spent the morning working through options for a new product promotion - not new but a version 3 to help with bonuses for affiliate marketing. Been using the product for years. Feeling like a rabbit in the headlights

The king parrots are a constant - not every day does this lady visit. Took the car to go walking and shopping - head clearing time

Coral heath flower

Mission was to find wasp orchids in a known area in Ku-ring Gai Chase NP. These branch teepees came up last year - orchids are here. Study the leaf litter- no leaves showing. Same all the way through the diagonal walked in the bush

Did find a hyacinth orchid deep in the bush

Close up

Dipodium variegatum - 2nd plant found not far off - still well off track

As the plan was to walk in rainforest - had boots on to ward off leeches. Just as well - copped two on the boots

Bush sound was full of cicada noise - husks of the little guys

Walked back along the main trail - seeded hyacinth orchid. Lack of spots on the flower stalk says it is dipodium punctatum - not seen them here

Found one more on the east side of the track - not often see them this side as it was burned a few years ago

Close up. Also dipodium variegatum. Walked along Perimeter Track past where I came in - not often walked this way - orchids are few in the thicker bush

Fringe lily

Wattle flower emerging. Close up shows a few ants - guessing they are pollinators

Orchid spotting gets more rewarding when there are multiple locations- good to see some in places seldom walked

It is bark shedding season - tears too

I learned a long time ago to do car park test. What orchids are adjacent to the car parking spot? Two today found at the end of the walk

Got the shopping done. Day before school starts again was quiet - some schools were back. Those mums were waiting at school not at the shops.

Chose not to do bonus pages for the product launch - they can wait till tomorrow

Dinner: Cottage pie from leftover bolognese sauce - my wife did the mash. I did the veges and reheat in airfryer.

Did get the investing post out
