Fairies in my Garden

I have Fairies in my Garden. They are are Pink Fairies

They are a common and slender little native orchid (Caladenia latifolia) that are found in many regions around Australia

As many of you will know, Judy and I have an indigenous garden and one of the plants I adore are our Pink Fairies. Every year I look forward to our Pink Fairies putting up their single leaf around June-July and shortly after a pink flower.

But this year a remarkable thing has occurred. A Pink Fairy has appeared in a pot plant on our decking.

The Pot Plant contains a Ficus and below is a photograph of the Pot Plant.

The Pink Fairy in the pot looks like this.

In wild they currently look like this.

Our Pink Fairies will be flowering soon. I hope the Pink Fairy in the Pot Plant flowers.
