According to MaX Fulcher: The Vanda was part of a bulk purchase made from a local commercial (cut flower) orchid grower who had passed away – his vast collection was jobbed out to me. Rescued, it grew on a circle of upright old bridge timbers on the property surrounded by Cooroy Creek.

Apologies. Lost in time. I never met the man. My (then) builder had bought the nursery and was clearing the property. I did meet the man’s daughter briefly. Again, 10 year s ago. The ladies in the photograph are Seyen Surjan (gardener to our property) and my sister Gem, (vale.1937-2005)
