On the way to Cecil Track we made a quick stop to see the beautiful Veined Helmet Orchids Corybas diemenicus flowering in their usual spot at the Gum Flat corner admiring their delicate beauty.

It was a gentle stroll along Cecil Track in the sun noting plants along the way. Not much was flowering at this time–a little Pink Heath, Sundews and Sweet Wattle.

The ants were building up their nests - in preparation for more rain perhaps.
