Orchids at Enfield

In the 1960’s the Field Naturalists Club of Ballarat regarded the “Sandy Patch” at Enfield the best place to find winter-flowering orchids.

The club will visit the Sandy Patch on Tuesday, 16 August, 2016 weather permitting.

Many types of orchid leaves are present and will flower during the next few weeks:
