I took Glen to the train station in Traralgon on Tuesday. She was due for her regular 'grand-kid fix' in Melbourne. After our goodbyes, I headed for Crinigan Reserve in nearby Morwell where it's always a bit wetter than around home.
I lucked out on finding any of the scarce and vulnerable Swamp Greenhoods that grow there - probably a bit early yet. Plenty of others though, including several nice colonies of Slaty, (I think), Helmet-orchids, plus Tall and Nodding Greenhoods. Often all three were within a 'belly roll' of one another. (Orchid photographers will understand).

Why the title? There was even a Pea in flower, so good ol' Spring can only be just around the corner!
