HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Around the grounds . October orchids.

The Large Tongue Orchid
It’s that time of year again…a carefull look around the area surrounding the museum revealed a couple of Australian Terrestrial Orchids.   This one was in flower with many other immature spikes emerging in a small cluster getting ready to flower.  It is also known as the The Cow Orchid or The Duckbill Orchid, or by the scientific name of Cryptostylis subulata.

An amazing looking orchid.

It is a fabulous time of year to visit the museum with your camera at the ready,  the bush surrounding the museum has many hidden wonders just waiting to be found.
