    Here are some wild Pterostylis found near Bowral, NSW yesterday. They're part of the 'cauline' group (sometimes called Diplodium) so flowers don't emerge from a rosette.

    Ugh, I can't wait to get back out in the field this Spring/Summer... Making me jealous... Those are some very cool finds.
