This (Eulophia clavicornis) little yellow beauty was identified incorrectly in November as Eulophia speciosa, so for the flower fanatics here's some labelled pics to clear that up!

This white flower (Habenaria epipactidea) has recently been photographed and identified. We are enjoying these beautiful flowers for they do not last very long and may not be seen again for years to come.
