Piccie of the day: an Orchid

Deb and I broke with our tradition of heading out of town today.

Our garage has been sorely in need of sorting out for ever since we moved in (over two years ago)  so we stayed home and made a start.

By the time we finished it was nearly 3:00 and given we are still in the midst of short winter days we decided to stay home.

I was bitterly cold again today so it was probably a good day to stay put.

Spring can't be too far away now? Surely not?

And once the warmer weather comes I can go hunting for beauties like this.

It is a Spotted Sun Orchid (Thelymitra merranae)  I snapped last spring.
