An orgy of orchids

This single clump had eleven stalks and eighteen spider orchids.

Spring in Western Australia’s southwest is the greatest wildflower show on earth.

All photos in this post were taken on September 16, 2016, within a few metres of one road, a little off the Stirling Range’s eastern end.

Wine review: two excellent, affordable W.A. Chardonnays

Stella Bella 2014 Chardonnay and Castle Rock 2014 Diletti Chardonnay are available for circa $30 a bottle in Australia.  Respectively, from Margaret River and Porongurup, each is distinctly different. Both are clearly superior to a lot of more expensive Australian Chardonnays.
