Lady Finger Orchids (caladenia catenata) have been in flower in the Cove since April. The plants are about 15cm tall and there is usually a single flower on a single stem. The flowers are white with a yellow tipped labellum. The plants are deciduous and die back to the ground in summer.

If you wish to see these plants, they can occasionally be seen along the bush tracks in the Cove. There are also quite a few on the western side of Cove Boulevarde south of Point Circuit.

There are also some pale pink orchids which are probably...

Diamond Python

A week after the April storms, our resident diamond python is looking for a dry home for winter. Our new boatshed seemed to provide an ideal location. He examined the door for about ten minutes before he decided that it was firmly shut. We have had regular visits by a diamond python of this size for the last 25 years. I don't know if it is the original one or if there is a family of them.

CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA - 2015 REPORT

I was seriously concerned that, if we got a good attendance this year, there might not be enough rubbish to go around, so to speak.

Well, we had an amazing turn out. A total of twenty three willing helpers gave up their Sunday morning to pick up this year's detritus. That's 15% of our resident population! Tell that to Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.

As for the rubbish, our generous benefactors - the passing general public - had made quite sure we wouldn't go short. I'm guessing we collected another two...

What better way to celebrate the 25th Clean Up Australia Day than to have a record turn-out of willing Cove volunteers to assist our local coordinator, Tony Hann. Sign-on is at the Hall at 8am on Sunday 1st March. Remember to bring your hat and fly spray! Rubbish collection bags will be provided.

The inspiration for Clean Up Australia Day came from passionate yachtie, Ian Kiernan, who was horrified at the amount of rubbish he encountered in the world's oceans. From the beginning this initiative was a great success. Over the past 25 years, Australians have contributed more...
