Rotary Way Burn visit

I went up to Rotary Way this afternoon in strong wind, unfortunately, so photography was difficult. The Micranthus alopecuroides was still looking good and there was one Moraea bituminosa (hard to identify, but the stickiness was the giveaway).  There were also many Merciera leptoloba (which is white, but still has blue pollen!) and some Thereianthus bracteolatus, which was new to me.  Perhaps the most spectacular scene was the massed display of Lanaria lanata, which are now in full bloom.

On the Orchid side, I was pleased to relocate an Acrolophia lamellata at the same site where we photographed one on 25 November 2014 – in fact I am convinced it is the same plant!

    This photographic recording of interesting fynbos species in flower is such a valuable asset to the Fernkloof database. Many thanks, Ronnie
