One of the special plants in our backyard

Shortly after we bought our house at Rye, I realised we had native orchids in our back yard. Initially there were only 20 – 40 but over the years I have hand weeded amongst them and around their perimeter with the result that we now have over 100 and they’re still increasing. The species is Pink Fairies Caladenia latifloia and whilst they are relatively common, we think they are special.

The photograph below is a couple of our special orchids.
