Esperance and most of WA is known for the beautiful wild flowers that appear at certain times of the years.
In Esperance they mostly appear around September, but I’ve noticed a few early ones alongside the roads.
This orchid is usually a shy flower that hides itself away from prying eyes!
You have to look carefully to find it, usually growing around the mossy granite outcrops and on the banks of the few river systems that run through Esperance.
It seems to like the cool, moist and sheltered conditions that these areas provide.
This one caught my eye, just as I was about to turn onto the main road, in full view of everybody and far from any shade or water!
